LODA — The former Loda Grade School building was recently purchased by the Aardsma family, who intend to clean up the property, renovate the building over time and use it for two of their businesses.

The long-vacant building on Jefferson Street on the village’s north edge is expected to be used as the shipping department for Mulberry Lane Farm and for labs and production for Aardsma Research & Publishing, the Aardsma family said.
