An Indiana apple farmer’s journey and how the Gator XUV835 helps
We first met Jason McClure two years ago, working on his family’s apple orchard in northern Indiana. His family has spent the past two decades operating the orchard, expanding both the products and opportunities. What began as a few dozen trees planted by a previous family around World War I is now 6,500 trees strong, boasting 130 apple varieties. On top of that, McClure’s grows peaches, pears, cherries, asparagus, rhubarb, pumpkins, and grapes, and has honeybee hives. They’ve expanded, too, into agritourism, doing what they can to bring people to the property and experience it’s offerings.
This summer, McClure got his hands on a John Deere Gator XUV835, and with it, we get to hear the story of his family-run farm, his growing business, and how the Gator helps with his work. The video was posted on ATV.com‘s YouTube channel.
