Jack Britt students participate in Job Shadowing event at Gillis Hill FarmsStudents from Jack Britt High School recently went to the Gillis Hill Farm located in West Fayetteville for a shadowing experience accompanied by CTE teachers Andrew Gillis and Pat Richardson. The students learned from their teacher Andrew Gillis about his farming business. Students learned about the farm’s business type, marketing practices, and the products and services offered to customers. They saw firsthand how different strategies taught in Entrepreneurship I and Accounting I were used to grow and strengthen the Gillis Hill Farm business, particularly in agritourism and ice cream retail sales. Students were allowed to sample the products and later went for a wagon ride (pictured on right) to the Gillis Hill Road Produce where they learned about direct marketing and retail principles used in the road-side stand business.
