During the brutal winter months, the harvesters at Westhaven Farm keep warm by growing tomatoes in the greenhouse. The veggies are ready by spring alongside cherry tomatoes and pesticide-free fruit pollinated naturally by bumblebees. Once spring blossoms into summer, the farmers dole out locally raised produce such as peaches, sweet corn, and u-pick strawberries. Autumn heralds the arrival of the dusky season with hayrides, farm animals, and a nighttime corn maze that guests can navigate with a flashlight. After Halloween, staffers transition into holiday mode by supplying free hot chocolate and cookies to patrons browsing the farm’s poinsettias, wreaths, and trees, from thin-needled Douglas Firs to bushy Blue Spruce’s. Once December 25 has come and gone, the farmers start the seasonal cycle anew, just as they have for the last 50 years.
In 1986, James Kulick Jr. founded Kulick Roofing, Inc, a home-repair business that fixes roofs, siding, and windows. He and his team use such durable materials as Timberline shingles during their repairs, which can correct flaws in slate, copper, asphalt shingle, cedar shakes, and flat roofs. The team can also perform inspections, installations, and maintenance work, and they can assess homes for energy savings so that owners can forgo the temporary solution of sealing their windows with sour cream. In emergency situations, they repair roofs 24 hours a day.

Green Flag Driving Experience deals in adrenaline. At its racetrack, novice drivers and advanced rubber burners alike get to feel the heady rush of epinephrine as they reach speeds in excess of 90 mph while manning the cockpit of a racecar. Drivers choose their rides from a fleet of Winged TQ Midgets or a selection of Legends cars, 5/8-scale replicas of autos from the Golden Age of American engineering when men were men and cars were powered by miniature locomotives. Before sliding behind their chosen wheel, each driver goes through an introduction and orientation that cover safety skills and handling basics. Then the Green Flag Driving Experience instructors keep watch as their pupils don provided helmets and suits, buckle up, and hit the pavement. Afterward, the instructors provide a thorough critique that helps the budding Andrettis maneuver with even more finesse on their next time around the track.
