Groundwork Enhanced By Poured Footings
114 years ago, on a day in 1905 that could have been much like today’s 86+ degrees, our German ancestors raised the first barn here in Virgil IL – just a short distance from their home. Did they know that by raising a structure capable of sustaining livestock and to store their harvests combined with hard labor, that they would provide an asset that would sustain our family for generations to come? We’d like to think that they did. We’d also like for them to know how appreciative the succeeding generations have been.
Today red and white striped cement trucks were kept busy augmenting the groundwork we did last fall by beginning to pour the concrete footings necessary for our new Barn. Jim Sauber recently shared our plans and trajectory with a customer as “a 49,000 sq-ft facility which we plan to be in near year end. It will improve our capacity, throughput and efficiency significantly. Exciting stuff.”
