Mennonite Heritage Village is the beneficiary of significant community support from businesses, individuals, clubs and governments. Recently we have benefited from the generosity of Enns Brothers, the local John Deere dealer.

For years, Enns Brothers has been contributing toward the care and maintenance of our old and failing fleet of yard equipment. Recently they offered us a new arrangement, which we have accepted, whereby our old equipment has been replaced with new equipment on a significantly subsidized rental arrangement.

We now have a new yard tractor with a cab, snow blower, front-end loader and rear-mounted mower deck. This item arrived in time to make the last of our snow clearing much more comfortable. We are also enjoying two new garden tractors with mower decks, tiller and grass bagger. We appreciate this generous support received from Ken Mantie, Gilbert Audette and the rest of the team at Enns Brothers.
