Dale Minyo stopped by Apple Farm Service, Inc. in Covington this week for the first of four open houses to help them celebrate 60 years of service. To commemorate the occasion, the dealership has opened a new store in Mechanicsburg, revamped the website and is having a Customer Appreciation Days sale on parts at their four locations through Feb. 27.
“Because it is our 60th anniversary and we added another store location on 29 outside of Mechanicsburg, we decided to clean out the shop and have our factory reps on hand just to commemorate our 60th year in business. Stop by, we are serving cheesy potatoes and chicken,” said Bill Apple. “We have open houses going in all four of our stores.”
The Mechanicsburg location open house is on Feb. 22 and the Botkins location open house is on Feb. 25. Apple Farm Service is also busy with winter service work this time of year, particularly for planters. Apple said items that can help cut costs are getting attention right now.
“Guys have the equipment they need for several years but they are looking for things that can save them money like precision agricultural tools to reduce seed, fertilizer and other inputs,” Apple said. “Self propelled sprayers have been a big seller and there are a lot of used ones out now too.”
