Hill and Hollow Farm fire recovery

$13,760 of $12,500 goal

Raised by 125 people in 28 months
The heart of Hill and Hollow Farm,  our main barn, burned to the ground in the wee hours of Wednesday July 13th. The scope of our loss is huge, We've lost equipment we have accumulated over the past 18 years of operating, our farm truck is gone, the hay, the tools, the row cover, the soil making operation and the barn itself. Already my family feels as if we are the phoenix rising from the ashes, although the remains of our barn and supplies still smolder. We are reaching out to you, our friends, family and community to help us rebuild and recover. The money you so generously donate will help us resupply immediately so we can continue our farming season. We will purchase new soil ammendments and soil making supplies, hand tools and equipement, row covers, harvest equipment, and market supplies. Our family and livestock are healthy and proud to be the stewards of a new future, but we need your help. Deepest gratitude.

sometime in the midst of celebrating my mother in law's 75th birthday, we met our goal. many goals were met on that august sunday. a tribute to three quarters of a century well lived, a community and family coming together in joy. with gratitude we all move ahead into this late summer. I will keep this campaign open for anyone inspired to donate. we will always reach beyond our immediate goals, into our highest aspirations, and carry on!! thanks y'all!!

so, it's cool to change your goal from $10,000 to $12,500 to reflect the attorney's fees I am about to incur because my insurance company is not behaving like a good neighbor? right?

and then there is the moment that you reach your goal. at that moment you cry. you find the place of gratitude there waiting. you sigh, you realize the person who made that donation is someone you have known since you were a young twenty something searching for her life's path. in that far away place in a time long ago, connections were made. love that lasts friends, that is what it is all about.

I was doing some accounting and noticed that I had left off a zero on our contribution to your barn raising. Big hugs.
