It’s hard to jump into the tractor and get to work when the battery has been stolen. Now imagine trying to work around the farm when nine other pieces of farm machinery are also missing batteries.
That’s just what happened to this Magna, Utah farm over the weekend. The owners of 3P Farm and Ranches told Fox 13 News that thieves came sometime during the night last weekend and made off with hundreds of dollars worth of one specific item — batteries.
A friend of the family has started a GoFundMe page for them:
A good friend of mine has fought tirelessly to stay in the game of farming! He does so much for the small community of Magna that he lives and loves. At every turn they get their dreams side tracked by thieves that prey on anything they can steal. They would never ask for help but their farm was broken into twice in the last few weeks (once was last night) and all of the batteries were stolen from their tractors and other equipment. Each battery costs around $300+ There were around 10 batteries. If anyone who knows what it’s like to struggle and still do what they are passionate about maybe this family would be one you could donate to so they can use their farm equipment to continue to do what they love which is to farm alfafla – Thanks in advance!
