David M Burkholder, Inc , Ephrata, and The J. E.
Baker Company of York have embarked upon a
joint aglime program to serve you better. We feel
that this move will enable us to supply you with
the highest quality agricultural limestone when
and where you want it.
Remember, now is the time to sweeten your soil
for a more productive growing season. It has been
estimated that liming can return from S 3 to $lO in
bigger and better crops for every dollar invested.
Take the first step to higher profits now. Call
