Thank you, to everyone who supported Arcadia's Spring2Action Day of Giving in April. We raised almost $25,000 to purchase a tractor and training equipment for use in our Veteran Farmer Program.
We ended up purchasing a beautiful, new to us, John Deere 5303 with a front end loader. The tractor is big enough to work the soil and pull our implements, but small enough to fit into our smaller fields and serve a variety of purposes. We're really happy with the tractor and are already training the Veterans how to maintain and safely operate the tractor and equipment.
