Reber Rock Farm Barn Rebuild

In 2013, Racey, Nathan, Chad and Gwen founded Reber Rock Farm in Essex, NY, hoping to help provide delicious, healthy, affordable food for the Essex foodscape and beyond on their small draft-powered farm.  This past September, Racey and Nathan's wedding celebration took place in the barn on their farm. It was a beautiful wedding, full of good food, friends, community, and a perfect setting.

On February 27th, 2016, Reber Rock Farm's newly-raised barn caught fire and burned to the ground. In the fire, Reber Rock Farm lost a newborn calf, their laying hens, tools, equipment, hay, and grain. Their livestock guardian dog, Piggles, was injured.

Update 3/4: Piggles is doing much better! 

RRF is so thankful for the outpouring of support from their caring community; many many people have  already done so much, and others are asking how they can help. Funds given here will help RRF rebuild the barn and replace equipment, supplies and animals lost or damaged in the fire.  

Any and all gifts are greatly appreciated. Please help them get back to doing what they love so they can give back to that same loving community.

If you'd like to have the full amount of your donation go to RRF, please mail a check made out to Reber Rock Farm to 1699 Jersey St., Essex, NY, 12936.

Check out this wonderful video showcasing the construction of the beautiful barn that was destroyed in the fire. Wait for your invitation to be part of building the new one!

Thank you!
