Vandals hit chicken buses; re-painting party Sept. 24 at Grant Farms

Last week, three of the farm’s buses were vandalized with swastikas and other graffiti. The buses symbolize the farm’s community – each bus was painted by CSA members, children, and volunteers. The Aurora Public Library recently donated one bus for the chickens which had been painted by children of their community.

On Sept. 24, Grant Family Farms invites the public to participate in a bus re-painting party from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
