Grandson of Wesley Thompson who was willed the Thompson Family Farm in 1948, with the passing of his father, Robert, Brian has many fond memories of growing up on the ‘family farm’ that he would like to share.
Originally, a fruit farm supplying the R. Thompson and Son Fruit Market, the store has also been ‘Kitch’s Variety Store and is presently a Korean Restaurant (The Owl of Minerva), serving wonderful Bone Soup.
