Help for Swallowtail Farm Apothecary to rebuild

I am starting this to help Swallowtail Farm rebuild their farmstand:

"Sadly this is what we awoke to last night. Someone destroyed our farmstand with their tractor / bucket loader. They used the neighbors driveway to get a running start to demolish it. I was up most of the night with the police and feeling horrible that someone intentionally tried to destroy our livelihood. We have had our little farm stand up in front of our house for 12 years. It was self service and honor system. We sell our eggs, dairy, herbal products and sometimes meats and baked goods. Sometimes we’ve sold plants and flowers. This past summer during the pandemic , we sold our neighbors vegetables and fruits and whole chickens.

I’ve found great joy making things look nice and finding all of your thank you notes over the years. It truly saddens me that someone decided to drive their tractor here past midnight and ruin a large portion of how we make our business run and pay our bills. This winter ,we made the decision due to the pandemic of not traveling to our winter market and focusing on our farm stand.

And looking for help from our neighbors.. the tire tracks went towards the Howe road from our house. It was a yellow tractor bucket loader. Looked like something our neighbor, Kurt Whitehouse sold when he moved off his place this fall. There were cedar branches dragged down the road. You can reach out to us or to LCS.

Thank you so much, Lauren and Sean"
