Picture of Abbie trying out the AgLift in the rain.Milder weather in the Mid-Atlantic region continued into the months of November and December - allowing AgrAbility PA to continue with its scheduled farm assessments. Abbie Spackman, project assistant, visited a farmer who recently received a Life Essentials AG platform lift that will enable him to access his combine. This lift was obtained with financial assistance provided by the state's Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR). AgrAbility PA continues to have a great working relationship with OVR and the project is grateful for their support. Watch the video of Abbie trying out the lift here.
