Chris Baxla runs local family owned and operated Baxla Tractor Sales, Inc. with 3 area stores. The business first opened in 1946, and since its first inception, the Baxla commitment has been to help those in the community grow.
Baxla Tractor Sales has a history and ongoing tradition of giving back to the community. The Baxla family and stores have hosted events such as “Girls Night Out”, an event which supported CASA, as well as reached out to the female community members to help educate and respond to the growing demands of female customers. Baxla has also partnered with Child Focus to help recruit potential foster parents, and has helped collect toys for distribution to children in foster care. Baxla also hosts annual Baxla breakfasts, where the Baxla family company hosts a full breakfast to directly feed the people in the communities they serve. CASA for Clermont Kids honors and salutes Baxla!
