The personal stories of triumph, hard work, and genuine achievement do not always make headline news. Yet, we take notice when a person is able to break through the minutiae of what often constitutes news. Colin and Karen Archipley are those rare individuals that make us take genuine notice.
The Archipley's created a unique VA-supported program not only gives returning veterans an employment opportunity, and also a chance to decompress and gradually adjust to civilian life.
"Archi’s Acres, Inc. is a USDA certified HydroOrganic farming enterprise.
