Our Community

  • Arthur never forgets the reasons why he became an operator—to interact with his customers, help the community, and improve the lives of all of his shoppers. He is dedicated to being part of the Sonora community and currently supports the Future Farmers of America, the local high school sport programs, and even the children of the town. Every year in Sonora there is a county fair where animals are auctioned off. These animals have been raised by the children living in Sonora and the proceeds go to their education. At each auction, Arthur buys a variety of animals and has the meat prepared. He then raffles off the meat and even provides a freezer to it to be kept in! Arthur loves doing this because he is able to positively affect the lives of both the children and his customers.
