Taking The Road Less Traveled From Hanover, N.H.

Pete and Gerry's Farm in Monroe, New Hampshire

Pete and Gerry’s Farm in Monroe, New Hampshire

FARM LIVING IS THE LIFE FOR TURBEVILLE

The survival is assisted by the fact Pete and Gerry’s started doing cage-free and organic egg production before it was cool. Being ahead of the Food, Inc. boom allowed them to become an organic egg industry leader before the industry even existed.

The size of the organization and prestige of a Tuck MBA has allowed Turbeville to do many things his fellow grads drool about as they work 60-plus hour weeks in crowded cubicles and jet set across the country—impact decisions immediately and flex his MBA muscles.

“The folks I work with look to me to solve the big problems,” Turbeville says. “I have immediately had chances to influence branding, marketing, and company strategy. The value of an MBA at a small company or startup is the same if not better than at a big company.”

A SIX-FIGURE SALARY TO START, PLUS ALL THE ORGANIC EGGS HE CAN EAT

His style of life is something Turbeville also believes his classmates envy.

“Almost every Tuckie in the back of their mind wants to stay in New Hampshire,” Turbevile says. “People fall in love with Hanover. My classmates have been interested in what I am doing. But I think it is the same for everyone who goes off the beaten path. Everyone has a general idea of what consultants and bankers do. About 30% of us are consultants. You can only have that conversation so many times.”

Turbeville might not be earning as much as his consulting compadres. His base salary of about $105,000 is below this year’s class average of $117,860, but besides performance bonuses and profit sharing, Turbeville can boast something McKinsey-ites cannot—all the free organic eggs his heart desires.
