A VACC loan to long-time VACC customers Ed and Kelly Meacham enabled them to purchase a piece of machinery for their 110-cow dairy farm and provided necessary operating capital. Ed and Kelly have operated Lemax Farm in North Hartland since 1997.

The Meachams raise their own youngstock and forages, and keep a full fleet of harvesting equipment to complete their own cropping. Ed and Kelly’s son, John, and his wife, Calista are key participants in the day-to-day farm operations and management decisions.
