Young Farmer Blog: Anthony Scheer in Colorado

Anthony Scheer

Hi! I’m here again to tell about my second scholarship trip for Niman Ranch this summer! It seemed like I just got back from the beaches of Florida and I was already packing back up to go to the mountains of Colorado.  I have been to Marczyk’s Fine Foods once before in the summer of 2014, so I knew it would be a great time, but I had no idea what surprises were in store.  I arrived on Friday the 14th and spent a little time touring Denver with fellow scholarship winner, Jaclynn Knutson, and Niman employee, Danny Kirkovich. We didn’t have time to climb any mountains, but we did stand at exactly one mile above sea level on the stairs of the capitol building!
