Rieckmann Family Farm

$19,665 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 271 people in 7 months
Mary and John Rieckmann are an older (should be retired) couple from Fremont, WI. The two of them are small dairy farmers on their family farm of 185 years, that simply cannot make it with milk prices so low. In Mary's words, "We keep hanging on, doing what we have to, to make it from day to day but I don't think we can keep going much longer if we don't get some help. We'd like to pass it down to our children but it seems like every bill collector is coming out of the woodwork."

The funds raised will be used to pay for feed, repair, vet, and power bills as soon as possible. The last thing Mary wrote was, "I am pleading for help. It's an awful feeling to know that you're about to lose your home. This is our last resort and any help given will be greatly appreciated." 

Please help out this couple that should be enjoying their retirement by now. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

The money is being withdrawn in mine and Mary's name to pay off their farm bills. Any amount of money withdrawn is given to Mary in the form of cash or check from the account. Again, thank you everyone for your generosity.
