follows:

ARTICLE I

1.1 SALE AND PURCHASE OF SHARES; CERTAIN LIABILITIES NOT BEING ASSUMED.

1.1.1 Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, at the

Closing Sellers will sell, convey, assign, deliver and transfer all of the

Shares to Buyer, and Buyer will purchase the Shares from Sellers free and

clear of any Encumbrances.

1.1.2 Notwithstanding that Buyer is purchasing all of the Shares of

shall specifically retain and indemnify Buyer, and Buyer shall not assume

or otherwise be responsible for, the following liabilities of the Company

("Sellers Retained Liabilities"):

(e) Employee paid time off as detailed in Schedule 1.1.2(e).

(f) Workers compensation liability for any claims first

arising prior to Closing.

1.2 PURCHASE PRICE AND PAYMENT. Subject to Section 1.3, the purchase price

("Purchase Price") for the Shares shall be paid to Sellers on a pro-rata basis

based upon each Seller's respective ownership percentage and consist of the

following:

1.2.1 Subject to Section 1.3, cash at Closing in the amount of Two

Million Four Hundred Ninety-Nine Thousand Dollars and No/100 Dollars

($2,499,000.00), less the Escrow Amount (as defined in Section 1.3), by

wire transfer of immediately available funds (the "Cash Payment").

1.2.2 Shares of common stock of Buyer's ultimate parent company,

Arcadia Resources, Inc. (OTB: ACDI.OB)("ACDI") equal in value to Two

Million and No/100 Dollars ($2,000,000.00). The number of ACDI shares to

be provided to Sellers will be based on the average closing price per

share for each of the last ten (10) trading days prior to Closing (the

"Stock Payment").

1.2.3 An earnout amount equal to four (4) times the cumulative

EBITDA of the Company's St. Joseph (Michigan) branch ("Earnout Amount")

for the twelve month period following the Closing Date ("Earnout Period"),

payable as follows:

1.2.3.1 Within thirty (30) days following the end of each

three month period during the Earnout Period, Buyer shall calculate

the cumulative Earnout Amount for the three month period just ended

and each prior three month period during the Earnout Period (the

"Cumulative Earnout Amount"). If the Cumulative Earnout Amount is a

positive number, then within five (5) business days following

Buyer's determination of the Cumulative Earnout Amount, Buyer shall

make a cash payment to Sellers (on a pro rata basis) equal to

("Quarterly Earnout Payment"): (x) fifty (50%) percent of the

Cumulative Earnout Amount, minus (y) the aggregate amount of

Quarterly Earnout Payments made by Buyer to Seller pursuant to this

Section 1.2.3 for all prior three month periods. If the Cumulative

Earnout Amount or Quarterly Earnout Payment is a negative number,

then the Quarterly Earnout Payment for that period shall be zero.

1.2.3.2 Within five (5) business days following the Buyer's

determination of Cumulative Earnout Amount for the last three (3)

month period during the Earnout Period, Buyer shall pay to Sellers

(on a pro rata basis) an amount equal to the entire Cumulative

Earnout Amount, minus the aggregate amount of the Quarterly Earnout

Payments previously made by Buyer.

<PAGE>

1.2.3.3 If the aggregate amount of Quarterly Earnout Payments

exceeds the actual Earnout Amount for the entire Earnout Period,

then the Buyer shall be reimbursed the excess amount paid to Sellers

from the Escrow Amount.

1.2.3.4 During the Earnout Period, monthly financial

statements of the Company utilized in determining the Earnout Amount

shall be provided to Sellers.

1.3 PURCHASE PRICE ADJUSTMENT. The Cash Payment amount due at Closing or

any other amount otherwise due Sellers hereunder shall be adjusted downward if

the Company's "Net Current Asset Value" (as defined herein) as of the Closing

Date is less than the Company's average Net Current Asset Value for the three

(3) month period ending March 31, 2005. For this purpose, the term "Net Current

Asset Value" means the book value of the Company's current assets as of the

applicable measurement date minus the Company's current liabilities as of the

same date, each of which shall be determined in accordance with GAAP. Within

ninety (90) days following the Closing, Buyer shall provide Sellers with a

Schedule prepared by Buyer in good faith showing (i) the Net Current Asset Value

as of the Closing Date, (ii) the average Net Current Asset Value for the three

month period ended March 31, 2005, and (iii) an estimate of the amount of the

adjustment to the Purchase Price, if any ("Buyer's Adjustment Schedule"). In

order for Buyer to prepare its Buyer's Adjustment Schedule, the Sellers shall

provide Buyer a copy of the Company's April 2005 financial statements on or

before May 31, 2005. Unless Sellers shall provide Buyer with written objection

to the Buyer's Adjustment Schedule within thirty (30) days following Sellers'

receipt thereof, the Buyer's Adjustment Schedule shall become final, binding and

conclusive upon the parties for purposes of this Agreement and Buyer shall be

entitled to have the Purchase Price adjustment amount reflected in the Buyer's

Adjustment Schedule released to Buyer from the Escrow Amount or otherwise. If

Sellers timely provide said objection to the Buyer's Adjustment Schedule, and

the parties are unable to reach a mutual agreement as to the Purchase Price

adjustment amount within a period of thirty (30) days following such objection

by Sellers, then within seven (7) days thereafter, the calculation of the

Purchase Price adjustment shall be submitted to an independent certified public

accountant mutually selected, in writing, by the parties for such purpose

("Independent Accountant"). Each party shall thereupon furnish to the

Independent Accountant such work papers and other documents and information

requested by the Independent Accountant. The Independent Accountant shall

determine the Purchase Price adjustment within thirty (30) days following the

date of its appointment, which determination shall be final, binding, and

conclusive upon the parties. The parties shall bear all costs, fees and expenses

of the Independent Accountant equally.

1.4 ESCROW AMOUNT. At the Closing, Buyer shall deposit the sum of Two

Hundred Forty-Five Thousand and No/100 Dollars ($245,000.00) into escrow (the

"Escrow Amount") to be held pursuant to the terms of that certain Escrow

Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit 1.4. The Escrow Amount shall be used to (i)

satisfy any valid indemnification claims that Buyer has against the Sellers,

(ii) reimburse Buyer for the amount of any excess Quarterly Earnout Payments,

and (iii) satisfy any other claims or rights of set off that Buyer has against

Sellers. Within five (5) days following the final determination of the

Cumulative Earnout Amount, the escrow agent shall release to Sellers (on a pro

rata basis) one-half of the remaining balance of the Escrow Amount, less a

reasonable reserve for any pending indemnification claims/offsets.

<PAGE>

Within thirty (30) days following the second anniversary date of the Closing

Date, the escrow agent shall release to Sellers the remaining balance of the

Escrow Amount, less a reasonable reserve for pending indemnification

claims/offsets. Once all indemnification claims/set offs have been finally

resolved, the balance of the Escrow Amount, if any, shall be released to

Sellers.

1.5 NATURE OF ACDI STOCK. Each Seller understands that the ACDI stock

acquired by them hereunder has not been registered under the Securities Act of

1933, as amended (the "Act"), or under any applicable state securities law, and

is being issued to them in reliance upon available exemptions from registration,

and is deemed restricted stock within the meaning of Rule 144 promulgated by the

Securities Exchange Commission. Each Seller further acknowledges and understands

that the resale of the ACDI stock has not been registered by ACDI, and the ACDI

stock cannot be resold by Sellers unless the ACDI stock is registered for resale

or an exemption from registration is available under federal and state law. As a

condition to Sellers' receipt of the Stock Payment, each Seller shall be

required to execute and deliver to ACDI the Stock Payment Agreement in the form

attached hereto as Exhibit "1.5". Buyer shall cause ACDI to issue to each Seller

a stock certificate evidencing such Seller's share of the Stock Payment as soon

as reasonably possibly following the Closing.

Agreement will take place at 10:00 a.m. on April 30, 2005 at the offices of

option, to be reimbursed from the Escrow Amount or otherwise offset the amount

of such uncollected receivable. In the event that Buyer collects any portion of

reimbursement from the escrow, or offset amounts otherwise owing Sellers, Buyer

shall promptly remit such payment to Sellers. For any and all accounts

receivable for which Buyer is reimbursed out of the Escrow Amount, or otherwise,
