In the Beginning...May 2021

pouring concrete

Every great work begins with a foundation and foundation work for Fathers Farm started May 2021! The picture above shows Dan Slaubaugh with his excavator. Dan, our board president, has overseen this building project. His constant presence, hard work and donation of machinery has been very significant. Many other local farmers and neighbors donated equipment and time to prepare the site. Leon Beachy was our cement contractor for laying out the site, building foam block walls, and pouring the walls. Brian Stumpf and a crew from Applegren Contruction in Grand Forks came to pour the gym floor.
