Green Community - Kafka Granite

KAFKA GRANITE HELPS BUILD A GREEN COMMUNITY

Kafka Granite Partners with Eco Village: In the Spring of 2012, St. Croix Valley Habitat for Humanity broke ground on Eco Village, an energy independent, affordable housing community located in River Falls, WI. When completed, the Eco Village will have 18 units and is expected to be the largest net-zero project in the nation, meaning it will produce more energy than it consumes. With an array of environmentally friendly products, Kafka Granite has partnered with Eco Village to help create a beautiful and sustainable landscape.

Eco Village will be utilizing both Permeable Paver Grit and Standard and/or Stabilized Pathway Mix for the driveways, boulevards, sidewalks, and walking trails. The permeability of both products will significantly help Eco Village control storm water run-off, while creating a natural and aesthetically pleasing environment. Kafka Granite is excited to be a part of this efficient, ecological, state-of-the-art, and affordable community housing project. We will be following this project as it progresses, so say stay tuned for future updates!

To learn more about Eco Village, check out the St. Croix Valley Habitat for Humanity website or read this article featured in The LA Times. Want to become involved in this project? Learn how you can donate materials or volunteer your skills.

Work Hard Play Hard - Kafka Granite

WORK HARD, PLAY HARD

Kafka Granite challenges Kafka Conveyors to golf scramble: On a brisk September Saturday, the employees at Kafka Granite teed up for a round of golf, some drinks, and a whole lot of fun. Kafka Granite joined Kafka Conveyors & Equipment (owned by Glenn Kafka‘s brother, Jim) for the first ever Kafka Granite vs Kafka Conveyors Employee Golf Scramble.

The teams golfed 9 holes, at local Mystique Meadows Golf Course. After receiving a multitude of generous prize donations, the employees were able to compete for shortest putt, longest drive, and other fun competitions. After the golf tournament, the entire group gathered at Edwin Memorial Lanes, a nearby bar and restaurant, for a steak dinner.

We are grateful to have such a hardworking group of employees that share our core values. As a family owned and operated business, we enjoy gathering our employees and their families for some fun. We look forward to making the Kafka Granite vs. Kafka Conveyors Employee Golf Scramble an annual event.

Thank you, Kafka employees.

Burma Red Stabilized Infield - Mosinee, WI

KAFKA GRANITE STEPS UP TO THE PLATE

Late this summer, Kafka Granite showed it’s support of their new home of Mosinee, Wisconsin in a big way. While other community baseball and softball organizations were raising big money with plans to build a brand new complex, Mosinee Youth Baseball was happy they finally had enough money to update an outdated scoreboard. When Kafka Granite heard of the Youth Baseball League’s need for an updated field, we stepped up to the plate.

Kafka Granite donated enough Burma Red Stabilized Infield Mix for Mosinee Youth Baseball to redo their entire field. Mosinee Youth Baseball was even more thrilled when they learned this isn’t your average infield mix. Kafka Granite’s Stabilized Infield Mix combines the superior drainage characteristics of our Standard Infield Mix with Stabilizer Organic Binder, allowing you to play ball, rain or shine! This firm and resilient playing surface has virtually no mud or dust, retains flexibility and cushion, and and reduces erosion. Mosinee Youth Baseball’s new Stabilized Infield requires less maintenance, thus allowing them to engage in more competition, recreation, practice, and fun, while minimizing preparations and cancellations.

Is your park overdue for a new infield or warning track? Check out our Hilltopper and Stabilized options. Working with a low budget? Our Standard Mix works as a great topdressing to existing fields. Kafka Granite’s wide line of ballyard materials are suitable for all budgets…from the little league to the major league!
