I’d like you to “meet” someone very important to us. Were it not for him (and of course my mother-in-law), Goldfinch Meadows and my husband, would not exist. Allow me to introduce you to the man, the myth, the legend– George W. Albright. Also known as “PopPop” and “Reds”. Here he is working the land on the farm many moons ago:
PopPop was 51 when my husband Alfie was born. So all Alfie (and I) remember him with is grey hair. But apparently he had red hair at one time, hence the name “Reds”. Even though he never got to meet our little Roman, we see a lot of PopPop in him, which is why we sometimes refer to him as “Little Reds”. We’re fairly certain he’ll be the one to take over the farm one day and keep the legacy of the land alive.
PopPop was not only a farmer and salt of the earth good man, he was also a veteran.
PFC Albright served during WWII in the 101st Airborne, was a survivor of the Battle of the Bulge and a Purple Heart recipient. He was laid to rest at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery in 2008 which is why we’re so passionate about participating in Wreaths Across America for the last 10 years.
It’s also why, in honor of him, this year and every year going forward we’re offering a 10% discount to current military and our veterans. We can’t thank you enough for your service. It was an honor and a privilege to know my father-in-law– a hero from The Greatest Generation. We hope that this discount will show how much we appreciate what our military and what our veterans have sacrificed for us. And we hope that as you enjoy your meal with our beef, you’ll think of PFC Albright and smile.
