“Our Day of Service at Blackacre was inspiring. Many of my team members including me had no idea 300-acres of land remained undeveloped so close to where we live. Helping to repair broken fences along the cow pasture was not only productive and a good work out but made my people feel like they were making a difference and brought us even closer together which means better output when we return to our regular day jobs next week”Amanda
“Holding a team retreat at Blackacre was delightful. We were able to work and enjoy lunch gathered around a long dining room table inside the Presley Tyler House. We went ‘away’ without going away saving both time and money for the company by meeting at the historic homestead.”Chris
