On Thursday, May 31st, The Darke County Ag Society received a donation from Apple Farm Service; a new tractor. Apple Farm Service donated a brand new Case IH Maxxum 125 to the Darke County Fairgrounds to be used free of charge for the next six months by the Darke County Ag Society.

“We’re so happy that Apple Farm Service thought of us, and donated this tractor for our team to use,” said Fair Manager, Brian Rismiller. “We’ve never been chosen for this program, and are thankful to be picked!”

The new Case IH tractor will be used for plenty of tasks around the fairgrounds. Some of these tasks include resetting the track after races, raking dirt after tractor pulls, and mowing around the grounds.

“Apple Farm Service is glad to help the Darke County Ag Society!” said Bill Apple, President of Apple Farm Service. “Case IH is extremely generous in working with local dealerships to support to nonprofit organizations like the Ag Society. We are delighted to help an organization that is so vital to the community of Darke County.”

In six months this new Case IH Tractor will be for sale to a well-deserving farmer, but for now, you might see this machine working hard at the Darke County Fairgrounds.
