follow url Dan has had a long relationship with citrus and apple growers working with all from Florida, Texas or California for citrus or Michigan, Virginia or Washington State for apples and pears. You don't work that long in the industry and not know who the best are and where the better fruit is being produced and packed. Hands on and in the groves and orchards is where Dan likes it the most !
During the off season and when not traveling so much to the meetings and conventions of state FFA's and Music Educators conventions, you can find Dan out on his boat fishing on beautiful Kentucky Lake or spoiling his grand children !
