    Pickaxes help farmers dig in

    Day 65

    Axe and You Shall Receive

    Securing a bountiful harvest is hard work. The farmers in Annayo know this all too well… There are weeds to keep away, lots of land to prepare for planting, crops to thin, and so much more.

    A pickaxe can do a lot to ease some of the burden. They can be used to break up rocky and hardened surfaces, or to cut tough roots that might be getting in the way.

    No matter what they’re used for, a new pickaxe in hand helps farmer put a little more muscle behind even their toughest tasks.

    This one was simple…20 pickaxes went to 20 farms in Annayo!

    By providing all of the farms with these extra supplies, they’ll be better able to use all of the labor available to them on the farm, helping them maximize their yield and make the most of what the land has to offer.
