Thank you Scout Jake Little!

McCoy was honored to have Jake do his Eagle Scout project on the farm. He made a beautiful fire pit that will make a lasting impression on this community. We are proud to be a part of his ending journey with the Boy Scouts and grateful for his contributions to McCoy Farm and Gardens. Thank you Jake!
