Coomer Farm Devastating Barn Fire

Words can not describe the devastation we went through last night. A freak accident caused our beloved 100 year old barn to go up in flames. Yes, this was my chicken barn. We lost every single bird. Randall tried to get in to open coops but it was too hot too fast. The entire thing was gone in less than 30min. We saved the horses. They are with a dear friend. We lost everything we have worked for for 5 years. 150 chickens, 4 turkeys, all of our hay, saddles and tack. All of Randall's tools, our lawnmower. Our horse trailer. So much was lost. Most of you know we were working towards restoring the old barn. It was sound and needed a roof. Our insurance would not cover it because of the roof, therefore they would not cover anything inside. Years of memories, hard work and things that will never be replaced. A lesson learned. A hard one. But the house is fine. We are fine. The horses are fine. So much to be thankful for in the morning light. Not sure how but we will move forward.

We hsve no way to pay for a new barn, trailer or the large items in the barn. We have nothing left. Coomer Farm has served the poultry community for years providing quality poultry for pets, and 4h kids. We have provided riding lessons and education on livestock farming. Somehownwe will make it through this. We will rebuild. 

Thank you from the bottom of our heart.

Through the holidays we have been very busy. But we have made a large down payment on a new barn. All of this because of the kindness of others. Or new barn will arrive as a wonderful Christmas present. We have been so over whelmed with the kindness of others. The clean up is almost complete and we are moving forward one day at a time. We look forward to sharing our farm with everyone again. Providing quality poultry and more. We are blessed to have the birds that hatched and the wonderful turkeys we recieved from Ohio Nationals. Things are looking up for us. Thank you all so very much. Merry Christmas.

We had a clean up day Sunday. So many amazing friends and family came out to help. A huge step in the healing process. Lots still to do but a huge dent in it. This has been emotionally hard. I miss my birds every moment of the day. Cleaning up is really helping us move forward. Thank you all for the continued support.

We have received a few more quotes. The menards quote is still the most affordable. We will continie to look through this week. The clean up for the barn will take place on Sunday Oct 21st from 10am til at least 4pm. We are grateful to anyone coming to help. It will be a big step towards healing when the rubble is gone. It is very difficult to see every day.

I feel like people may be tired of hearing me say "thank you". I am overshelmed by the kindness of others and most times it is hard to find the right words. Each and every gesture has warmed our hearts.

Yesterday and today over 25 bouncing baby chicks hatched out of our incubator. Apart of the legacy we lost. We habe something to work towards. And it has made a little peice of me whole having them.

Also we will be having a benefit Silent Auction on the farm facebook page starting this Sunday. Please stop by and take a look we are adding all of the items this week. www.facebook.com/coomerfarm Thank you!

To get this kit which I have included the specs which are 30x54 is $9310.00 before taxes and delivery. We are greatful to anyone who has offered any kind of help. it os truly overwhelming and humbling. We appreciate every single one of you.
