Hi, I’m Austen. I started working at Meadowbrooke Gourds in March of 2013 on the farm crew. I did everything from pollinating, harvesting, and sorting gourds in the field. In June 2014, I started my current job as the parts person. Almost all the parts that are on each Meadowbrooke gourd are handmade at the shop.
I have an Associate’s degree in Art & Design. In my free time, I enjoy going to amusement parks, and I am an amusement park enthusiast and historian. I’ve ridden well over 150 different roller coasters. I also enjoy taking care of my pets. I have a variety of animals including cats, rabbits, goats, ducks, guineas, turkeys, chickens, and a dog named Angus.
And when it’s all been said and done, better that you had some fun. -Danny Elfman of Oingo Boingo
