At Old Toccoa Farm, we know that great service is the foundation of a successful business. That's why we're so grateful to have ETC as an MGA sponsor this past year. OTF's internet connection and great phone and internet service, will soon be even better, as ETC has started installing Fiber Optics within the community. Fiber to the home will provide our resident members with an upgrade in internet speed and a more reliable service they can rely on. We appreciate ETC and the fact that they produce a great product, at a fair price, are a locally owned business.

Old Toccoa Farm has a strong love for our Veterans. Sponsoring programs that assist and honor our Veterans is tightly woven into our DNA. Tonight we host a Special Edition Caymus Wine dinner, one of only 8 being held nationally, supporting the efforts of Honor Flight Atlanta and more specifically potential Honor Flight Veterans who live in North Georgia.

The mission of Honor Flight is to transport area Veterans to Washington D.C. to visit the memorials dedicated to honoring those who have served and sacrificed for our country. 

Our event is SOLD OUT and we expect to raise a significant amount of funding to support efforts to transport Veterans from the Blue Ridge area and surrounding areas. 

We ask each of you to pause during your day today, and recognize their bravery and service which, at no small cost, has paved the way for the opportunities and freedoms we enjoy today.  #CaymusHonorFlight #OTFHonorFlight #VeteransDay2022

Old Toccoa Farm would like to recognize Paul Stroemer, Director of Construction and Builder Services here at Old Toccoa Farm, as our employee of the month for November.
Paul took over as Director of Construction and Builder Services a couple of months ago and it was clear, with all that we had going on, he had big shoes to fill-- shoes previously worn by two proven OTF leaders; Eric Soroka (now City Administrator, Blue Ridge) and Bob VanOstrand (retired). Turns out, filling shoes comes naturally to Paul. 
Standing 6’ 7”, he not only fills shoes but also has a commanding presence.  Paul demonstrates other important attributes as well, such as always being punctual, and focusing on the details each and every day. And details are important when you are involved with $21 million in new home construction and leading OTF through the final stages of construction at the Hillside Cottages.  Paul also works daily managing logistics within Mountainside at Old Toccoa Farm, the new 50 lots we are developing here at Old Toccoa Farm. Watchful and logistical oversite on all construction activity within OTF is a very big responsibility, with many moving parts, and we are blessed to have Paul here with us to help make it all happen. 
Paul recently moved to the area, along with his family, from Madera Ranchos, CA, where he has lived for 33 years. Paul and his lovely wife, Kim, have two children, Paul Jr., 15, and Piper, 13. They also have two fur kids, a boxer mix named Buster, and Bella, a pit mix. 
Paul is a native of Miami, so it’s not surprising that he’s a Gator fan! (Go Dawgs). Paul honed his love of sports while playing high school basketball and baseball and continued to participate in both sports while in college.  When asked about a few of his favorite things, Paul counts his interest in classic cars and woodworking amongst his hobbies, along with spending time remodeling his home during his spare time. 
We are extremely grateful to have Paul on the OTF team and we ask that you join us in congratulating him on being recognized as our Employee of The Month!

Congratulations to our employee of the month, Lisa Hernandez! 
We are excited to honor Lisa who is a vital member of the OTF team.  Lisa currently works as a receptionist here at Old Toccoa Farm.  She loves interacting with all the members, guests, and staff and getting to know them on a personal level. 
Lisa is the voice of OTF.  Did you know when you call our main number it is Lisa that you hear? She sounds amazing!  Prior to working at OTF, Lisa had a career in doing voiceovers.  She still has the pleasure of occasionally voicing for clients around the world and now considers it a hobby because she loves it so much.  She also has experience in marketing and with this experience has contributed some fantastic ideas like our monthly Member Meet and Greet.
When Lisa was younger, she enjoyed water sports such as water skiing, scuba diving, and sailing.  Now she enjoys spending time with family, and paddle boarding with her sons (Daniel & Noah) in Lake Nottely.  She also loves taking walks to enjoy the beauty of nature here in the mountains with her husband Tony and her Rat Terrier, Yuki. 
Lisa enjoys listening to many music genres including Blue Grass, Classical, and nostalgic 80s pop/rock.  She loves to eat Southern food, especially from Dillard House.  But has recently discovered the Fried Chicken at The Tavern at Old Toccoa Farm as the best fried chicken she’s ever had.
It’s clear that Lisa has what it takes to be an effective member of the OTF team.  We are excited to have her on the team and we appreciate all that she does. 
Please congratulate Lisa on being recognized as Employee of the Month.

We want to send out a special thank you to our MGA sponsor, @sweetwaterbrew, for their ongoing commitment to Old Toccoa Farm. Our relationship with Sweetwater started many years ago and now with The Tavern open, we have the distinct pleasure of featuring one of their delicious brews, Broken Coast Lager. With flavor and aroma notes of key lime pie and orange zest from a special blend of hops and other natural flavors, Broken Coast BC Lager is truly a unique, tasty and refreshing coastal brew. Thank you Sweetwater for supporting our Tavern and our Men's Golf Association!

The shadows created by the setting sun allow you to truly appreciate the shaping in and around this golf course. The ups, and downs and turns within the turf areas, and cooler night-time breezes moving the  native grasses, create a truly special look and feel.  OTF at dusk is quite the site.

Join us in congratulating Andre Bivens, Old Toccoa Farm’s Employee of the month for September 2022. 

Andre is part of the golf course maintenance team here at OTF. He assists in cultivating the aesthetics of the property, including mowing the greens, weed eating by the river and around the bunkers. He takes pride in ensuring that everything looks nice for those who play golf here at Old Toccoa Farm. 

He also shared that in his role, he is able to do his part with a measure of autonomy and flexibility while being trusted to meet expectations. He also appreciates being able to to be himself and to have co-workers that he enjoys working with as part of team OTF. 
 
Will Newsom, Golf Course Superintendent here at OTF relayed that Andre has shown a lot of motivation to learn quickly in his role and he follows through with a great attention to detail. His conscientious work is appreciated, and we are thrilled to recognize him as an outstanding member of our team. 

Thinking back to his first day at Old Toccoa, he was struck by the vibe here and the beautiful views that you don’t get to see in and around Blue Ridge, where he moved to when he was 11 years old from Atlanta. It’s not surprising when asked about his favorite sports team, the Falcons topped his list!

When asked about the most interesting job he had before OTF, Andre shared that he worked in the family tile business and had the opportunity to do a project for a former ACDC band member. He’s exceled at tile work since he was 15 and he says that he looks forward to being able to use his skill in his own home someday.

In his spare time, Andre likes to play sports and video games and spend time at the gym with his friends. Speaking of friends, he shared that one of the best things about working at OTF besides the beauty of the surroundings is being able to work with Chad, one of his best friends. 

His advice to fellow team members is to meet challenges with patience and to look at situations from the perspective of others. 

We are grateful to have such an outstanding team member. Andre, we appreciate you!
