Anderson Supports the Mentally Challenged

Anderson Engineering made a decision to look into how we could help the Sunnyside Farm at the suggestion of Shannon Elliott (wife of Brenton Elliott an employee of the company). Sunnyside Farm is managed under the auspices of the PMHS. It is a residential facility for 60 mentally challenged adults, located in the Bulwer district. The farm runs a dairy for internal use and also makes butter, maas and cream which are sold onto the local community.A 40 litre dairy urn is essential for the transferring of milk from the milking cluster to the vat. The urn was worn out and so we assisted by replacing it with a new one.
