Kubota announced the latest recipient of a donated L-Series tractor in its “Geared to Give” program is Michigan farmer Jason Scramlin.
“Semper Fi, Mac”
The Old Man recognizes and applauds this young farmer and his family for their effort and their recognition by Kubota Tractor. The donation by Kubota is in partnership with the Farmer Veteran Coalition (FVC), in an effort to provide financial support and donated Kubota equipment to U.S. military veterans pursuing a future in farming.
A new venture, especially one as challenging as farming, is always a costly one for the startup. This award goes along way to helping the Scramlin family allocate their funds to other needed projects to keep their farming business growing and thriving. This recognition of a Veteran demonstrates that the character, discipline and knowledge gained through military service are an excellent foundation to build a business on for the veteran and family.
The future of farming in the US is well served by veterans willing to accept the challenge. Veterans are empowered with unique skills that are compatible with the rigors of farming.
Jason Scalin runs the Split Rail Farm with an eye towards involving the community, especially the youth to whom by opens his farm for hands-on learning. This is a commitment to the future; not only for his farm, but for all young people who want to continue and grow the American farming community.
