Meet the Team
Maddie grew up in the Mifflinburg area and was able to jump into her first job at the family business at the age of 13. It was here that she learned the game of weddings. Looking for a more permanent job, she came across Ard's Farm in 2010, but didn't start in this position. Initially, Maddie was the first Heavenly Hog BBQ employee, working only weekends outside. As the summer season drew to an end, she headed inside where she became a server, hoagie girl and even a hostess! After graduating from Mifflinburg high school, she continued her education at Susquehanna University finishing with two degrees in biology and ecology. Along the way, she never stopped working for Ard's Farm, but due to available hours events became her life! Her first glance at Ard's Farm weddings occurred in 2012. In a matter of two years Maddie took Ard's weddings from thirteen to fifty per year. She has helped plan wedding expos, galas and other large events in the past getting recognition on Wedding Wire, in the Daily Item and Standard Journal, including multiple "Best of the Susquehanna Valley" awards. Maddie has definitely learned the ropes of the wedding industry quickly and keeps up to date on the latest trends.
Maddie has known the Ard family for years, Alan Ard was even her North Central Pennsylvania soccer coach during her adolescent days. While she might not be one of the family members, she has grown to be a part of the family anyways. "Working at Ard's is one of the greatest opportunities I have run in to at this point in my life, not only have I learned how to be a professional, but I have also gained some of the best friends I could ask for. You are more than just an employee here, you are part of the Ard's Farm team as well as the Ard family."
