Old Toccoa Farm recognizes David high as our outstanding employee of the month for August 2022. David who works as both Gate House attendant and part time night security and since joining OTF, David has raised the bar welcoming our members and arriving guests with a friendly smile and focused professionalism. In short, David has added tremendous value to this critical position and we are honored to celebrate him as employee of the month.

Bill Mull, Old Toccoa Farm’s Gate House and Security Manager, describes David as the perfect teammate. “David arrives at his post early (never late) and puts in a full day, representing the best interest of Old Toccoa Farm”. 

David relocated to Mineral Bluff from Kentucky a year ago with his lovely wife. David served our country in the Marine Corps, and was a Presidential Bodyguard during the Nixon administration. David shared some interesting stories with his OTF colleagues, including times while married and not being able to divulge his location to his wife when he was with the President, for security reasons. David would tell his wife to watch the news to find out where the President was during the day or evening, this way she’d know where David was when not at home. 

In his spare time, David likes to fly fish and the Blue Ridge area provides the perfect backdrop for his hobby. David’s advice to his teammates at OTF is to be grateful for the job they have here and the people they work for, and reminds them how important it is to be on time!, We are thrilled to have David on our team, and we want to thank him for a job well done. We appreciate you, David!

It’s that exciting time again when Old Toccoa Farm has the privilege of choosing an Employee of the Month from amongst our awesome team!
For July, Matthew Roddenbery is the worthy recipient, and we want to extend our sincere congratulations to him!

Matthew works as Shift Leader/Lead Server and tends the bar here at our recently completed Tavern. The beautiful views, the friendly work environment, including those he works with, the wonderful
members and management are the reasons that he loves being a part of the OTF Team. 

His proudest moment here was being chosen as July’s Employee of the Month. He fondly added a close second was the wedding for 200+ guests that was recently catered by the OTF Tavern and was perfect according to Matthew. He was an integral part of the team at that event which made it such a success, according to glowing feedback! 

Matthew is described as a joy to work with and he’s demonstrated from the outset of his career here that his heart is committed to brand OTF, according to Addison, who also added that in the 30 days of the Tavern being open, he’s been a second pair of eyes to him and is assisting in leading the staff in a positive direction.

Matthew is a Lakeland, Florida transplant and as an alumnus of Florida State, he’s still a Noles fan. Since moving to the beautiful mountains of north Georgia in 2013, he’s worked in a variety of roles in the food service industry and brings a wealth of experience to our team.

In his spare time, Matthew likes golfing and trout fishing. He said that he used to deep-sea fish in Florida and added that he has quit fly fishing as that was a whole different story, which sounds like it would be an interesting tale to hear!

His advice to other OTF Team members is to work hard, be nice, and always find something to do. He added that, regardless of what one might think, there’s always something to do, even cleaning the windows. Matthew’s work ethic has certainly been recognized and appreciated here and we hope that you will join us in congratulating him.

Well done Matthew, we appreciate you!

Today is Father’s Day and Old Toccoa Farm would like to dedicate this post to all the wonderful fathers, and father figures, who have touched the lives of so many people.  This picture is a great representation of the wonderful men who have been great fathers to their children, and others’ kids. They have been mentors and coaches to so many children. They are great men and great fathers. Our membership is filled with men just like them.  Today we honor each and every one of our fathers. The oftentimes silent but impactful role you have played in the lives of others is recognized today and every day! Thank you for all that you do.

Some fathers may not be with us anymore, but their impact on our lives and their love for us will live on forever. 

Happy Father’s Day gentlemen!#fathersday #oldtoccoafarm

Congratulations to our employee of the month, Ranna Sayre! 

We are excited to honor Ranna for who she is as a person as well as a vital member of the OTF team.  Ranna currently works in real estate and membership sales here at Old Toccoa Farm and is a licensed real estate agent with our in-house brokerage, Old Toccoa Farm Realty. While new to real estate sales, Ranna was highly effective in managing OTF’s digital marketing leads for the past year. Ranna’s efforts in managing our leads contributed to record real estate sales in 2021.  Ranna moved from lead management to real estate in March of this year.

In the summer of 2021, Ranna and her partner, Russ DeSena, visited the Blue Ridge area for a brief vacation, and Russ DeSena connected with his long-time friend Peter Knutzen for dinner and drinks in downtown Blue Ridge. The conversation led to Old Toccoa Farm and how Russ and Ranna would love living in the mountains.  What would they do for work?  The next night, Peter introduced Russ to Pam and Doug Miracle and shortly thereafter Russ was offered a job with Escape to Blue Ridge.  Ranna was offered a job at OTF and their move to Blue Ridge was etched in stone! 

Ranna and Russ (and their lab Marley) enjoy the mountain life and their love for hiking will soon have them taking on a stretch of the Appalachian Trail.  Ranna has two children, Abby and Adam. While she misses them dearly, she tries to get up north as much as possible to visit with them. Ranna is also going to be a grandmother soon! So she has so much to look forward to this year. 

It’s clear that Ranna has what it takes to be an effective real estate agent and while starting off can be challenging, she has developed the skills and discipline, and work ethic that will make her successful for years to come.  We are excited to have her on the sales team and we appreciate all that she does, month to month, to present and market Old Toccoa Farm. 

Please congratulate Ranna on being our Employee of the Month.

Congratulations to our employee of the month, Don Grotefend! 
He is currently on our Golf Maintenance staff as a tee and approach mower at Old Toccoa Farm. 

Constantly improving the functionality and aesthetics of the property is what he enjoys best about his job. He’s willing to do anything and everything to keep things running smoothly.  If he sees something that needs to be done, he’s ready to get his hands dirty and jumps in without question.  Recently we needed help at the gatehouse/guard gate, and he did a fabulous job interacting with all the members and getting to know them.  If the staff at the tavern needed help, he would be there in a heartbeat. Whatever we need to keep things running, he’s there. 

When asked about his proudest moment on the job, Don said it was now, just being considered an employee of the month was an honor. 

Don currently lives in Murphy, NC, but is originally from Lakeland, FL, making his favorite sports team the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Growing up, Don was a talkative kid.  He would walk around the neighborhood pulling weeds from the yards and accepting peanuts as payment.  His favorite family activity is spending quality time outdoors.  When not at OTF Don enjoys gardening, tap dancing, and playing his ukulele.

Don is a team player and would advise the rest of his team to “Slow down for quality work!”
Congratulations Don!  Thank you for all that you do here at Old Toccoa Farm!
