So Cal native son Andy Sheaffer is relatively new to farming. For years, he traveled the United States as a contractor specializing in slope stabilization and erosion control. Away from home six months of the year, Sheaffer wanted to spend more time at home with his wife and three children. Born, raised, and educated in Santa Barbara County, he put his feet firmly on home turf in 2008 by purchasing an Avocado and Lemon ranch with a 180 degree view of the Pacific Ocean. Soon after purchasing the land, Sheaffer made some big changes.

Saturday, August 29, FreshPoint Charlotte hosted their annual family fun day at Frank Liske Park in Concord, North Carolina.
Every year, FreshPoint Charlotte hosts an annual family fun day for their associates and family members. This year, FreshPoint Charlotte decided to close down business for the day to recognize and thank their employees for their hard work and dedication. While closing down business can be a difficult decision, especially when it can impact business and customer needs, the decision was made so that all associates could come out and enjoy the fun!
