Help Me Keep My Farm
The area was in a long term process of being repaired, rebuilt and refurbished. Chrissy, Paul, Anthony and I as well as the rest of my family have been building this farm since 2006 after early years of part time building a house. Our heart, souls and sweat went into this farm. Now, the devastation is overwhelming. There was no insurance on the barn structures due to the condition of the area with detritus scattered across the area. Many tons of garbage, wood waste, etc from the prior owners littered the area and over the years we have cleaned up the place to the point where this season insurance would have been a possibility. Our barn is an essential part of the farm. We will try to make do but, come Fall/Winter a barn is essential. Our structures will cost way over $150,000 to rebuild. A loan is not an option; we have put every cent we have into this farm; around $750,000; there is no deep well to go to and I hurt. Prayers are welcome
