Before most begin daily duties, a group of farmers meet at Cecilia Farm Service for coffee and conversation.
Some come in before starting. Others already have done a morning’s work.
They are the regulars, the coffee club or morning crew. They have their normal seats, the same ones every day. If a chair is not available, bags of deer corn will do.
Farmers often start trickling in before 7 a.m. and a second shift arrives around 8 a.m. The store opens earlier than most farm stores this time of year to cater to the early morning crowd.
