Boeder Johnson Family Barn Fire

The Boeder-Johnson Family had their barn burn to the ground on Wednesday March 20th, 2018 in Brainerd Minnesota with their animals, petting zoo animals, tractor and so many of the daily essentials that are needed on a family farm.  The well for their home was affected in addition and they run an in home daycare which had to be closed for two days until they had water.  They need funds for getting a permanent well solution before next winter, clean up, fire department expenses and the countless items that were lost.  Many old barns are not insurable, as is the case in this situation so they are without insurance funds to cover any of the loss. 

Jeremy, Amanda, Madison (15), Mavin(2) and Maci(1) are a humble, genuine family of farmers.  Madison is active in FFA and had projects due on her animals, Mavin had Midnight his treasured goat and so many more.  They also had many animals for their traveling petting zoo that put a lot of smiles on children at Schools, Gilbys Apple Orchard, Little Falls, Day of the Young Child, Birthday parties and so much more. 

It is our goal to give this amazing family less to worry about as they walk through a very big loss and difficult situation.  The family farmer is a cornerstone of allowing all of us to consume the things we enjoy on a daily basis.
