Tim like our other farmers farms proactively. He regularly; seeds, irrigates + cuts and stores hay so that when drought hits, and it always does, he is prepared. But, when you get a drought like this, which is really a once in a generation, even the best can be left short and this is where Tim has found himself!
Having already spent some $30,000.00 on additional feed this year Tim finally swallowed his pride last night and told me that if any of you (many of whom have already contacted me to ask if you can help) would like to donate to help buy a bale he would be eternally grateful! He also spoke of how physically exhausted he is and frustrated that so many jobs around the farm have simply gone undone over the last year and how a few extra hands would make the world of difference. As such Tim asked me if any of you might have some spare time to personally give him a hand on the property over the coming months?
How you can help:
1. Donate to help buy a bale. Tim estimates he will need 2 small truck loads of hay to get him through and with each costing approx. $3,850.00. We hope we can help cover some of the first truck loads cost for Tim. I believe each bale is worth some $350.00 each (some 200% more than the same would have been worth a year ago) but any donated amount will be greatly help and directly go towards Tims next truck load! (Minus GoFundMe's fee of 5% from each donation & the payment processor fee of 2.25% + $0.30 per donation.)
2. If your fit and don't mind getting your hands dirty + can spare 2-3 days over the coming months to give Tim a hand around the farm please get in touch with your estimated availability/ level of fitness and i'll get either Tim or his wife Chon to touch base with you.
On behalf of Tim's family thank you for any help you can offer, even if it is just sharing this page on your social media accounts, it's greatly appreciated!
