Tiffin, Ohio — Clyde, Ohio-based Eshleman Fruit Farm has been named as this year’s recipient of the St. Francis Community Service Award.
Rich Eshleman, owner of Eshleman Fruit Farm, was nominated and recently received the second annual award from the Sisters of St. Francis.
This recognition is associated with Charism Week on the St. Francis campus every fall.
The award goes to a person or business in the area that has given the St. Francis Community their gift of generosity with purity of intention and a charitable, heartfelt spirit. They expect nothing in return for their generosity.
“Rich has been unwavering in blessing us with the benefits of his fruit farm. Rich humbly gifts us and many others,” said Sister Patricia Froning. “His sharing with us has been an example of giving and expecting nothing in return but to say some prayers for him and his intentions.”
Sister Diane Mueller added, “Rich has been a very generous benefactor for many years to the Sisters of St. Francis of Tiffin. He has given of his produce from his orchards. The Sisters have enjoyed the many bushels of peaches, apples and other fruits.”
