It has been a good 25 years for Steads Farm Supply in Boissevain, although they did have to celebrate the anniversary differently than other years.
David and Diane Stead opened Steads Farm Supply in April 1996. Having reached the 25-year milestone, they are marking the anniversary, although with COVID, it is not the way they would have originally planned, David Stead said.
“You wonder where the time goes,” Stead said. “We never expected (the business) to develop the way it did. If it had been a normal year, we would have had an open house. Instead, we have something different this year.”
Stead said he talked to his dealers, and they all came through with 25 prizes. They have been holding 25 draws for 25 days, which will wrap up on May 15. There has been a variety of farm supply items going out, which will make plenty of those entered happy.
