  1. Yoga Classes at Taylor Gym Promote Well-Being & Raise Money

    Over the past two weeks Team Taylor and their families raised money for this weekend’s American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life by attending yoga classes at the Taylor Gym! Mishalin Modena hosted a free all-levels Vinyasa Flow yoga class that accepted donations. All proceeds went to Taylor Farms’ Relay for Life team who will be running the relay this weekend in Salinas, CA. To date, Team Taylor has raised $30,000 through all their fundraising efforts.

     

    “We had about 25 people who participated in the classes from every level, it fun, hard and exhilarating,” said Mishalin Modena, yoga instructor. I’m so happy we had the opportunity to bring this type of a Yoga class to the area for the first time while supporting an amazing cause.”


    “This was my first “official” yoga class,” stated Ken Adams. “It was difficult for me, I couldn’t believe how much I sweated, but the cool part is that you progress at your own level.  Even though I wasn’t very flexible and couldn’t do every move, each move helped me feel better at the end.  The hours after the class I felt great, and was surprised not to be sore the next day. I’ve learned some great techniques to do on my own and it was a great introduction to a new workout while supporting a great cause.”

    We like to host these types of events because as a company we enjoy giving our employees and their families the opportunity to do good in the community while also doing good things for their health and well-being.

    Ag Against Hunger recently hosted its 24th annual Agricultural Woman of the Year luncheon at Paraiso Vineyards by Smith Family Wines in Soledad, California. Taylor Farms was proud to be a Platinum Sponsor of this empowering award and attend the event to help celebrate the 2017 Woman of the Year recipient — Tonya Antle, Cofounder, EVP, Organic Produce Network.

    “One of the greatest gifts I can give is spending time with and helping to inspire young women in the produce industry,” Antle shared. “These bright and enthusiastic women reaffirm to me that the future looks bright for our industry. My mentor, Frieda Caplan, has done the same for me over my career, so I in turn, have paid it forward ever since.”

    Tonya Antle, Cofounder, EVP, Organic Produce Network.

    Ag Against Hunger is a nonprofit organization that works with local Monterey county growers, packers, and shippers (including Taylor Farms) to distribute more than 12 million pounds of surplus fresh produce to food banks each year.

    Kacie Vieth Ragsdale, Director of Product Development, Taylor Farms Retail, has been on the Ag Against Hunger council for four years, and she helps select the recipient of this award.

    “The Agricultural Woman of the Year is someone who embodies what Ag Against Hunger is as an organization, and someone who works tirelessly to promote, preserve, and protect agriculture in the Salinas Valley and beyond,” says Kacie. “This yearly award luncheon is one of the main fundraisers for Ag Against Hunger, and it raises awareness about the organization.”

    We congratulate Tonya on being named 2017’s Ag Woman of the Year by Monterey County’s Ag Against Hunger.
