So I was invited to speak at Blue Ridge Fish Hatchery in Kernersville North Carolina. The event was organized by Thomas Smith at Gardenstatekoi and hosted in large part by Blue Ridge. And as always, I had a great time.
Tom and the gang at Gardenstate, Jess, Tim, Fred, Zac, and Aaron, Kirsten, Casey, Josh, a guy named ‘Timmy Tots’ and all the guys at Blue Ridge Koi (and especially one of their fisheries employees Amanda) are wonderful and so hard working.
I collected a mess of images but that’s nothing compared to some of these folks! Paul Cuffaro (Youtube influencer and animal lover) was at the majority of the event and probably got the most-best video of the farm as anybody. I don’t see it posted yet (It’s the day after the event) but I’m sure editing takes time. Here’s Paul’s channel.
