Zephyr Wadkins, a farm hand with Butler Green Farms, looks at a display of photographs about the life of Akio Suyematsu on a tool shed wall.  The second annual “Akio Suyematsu Day” was celebrated with friends and family on the Suyematsu-Bentryn Family Farm recently. Young farm apprentices who never had the opportunity to meet Akio were also there to honor his life and the farm he created and preserved.

Great eats, (including a whole roast pig), walks around the farm, music by Chele’s Kitchen, and stories about Akio marked the occasion.
