Tonight’s turn of events is truly a test of our resilience. While we are devastated, we are incredibly thankful for the outpouring of support, prayers, and well wishes from our community. We are also endlessly grateful to the dozens of local fire companies, who worked through the night to get fire under control. A special thanks to Hellam Fire Company, who led the efforts.
In the coming days we will be taking stock and determining our next steps. What we do know now is that the third and second floor of the historic farmhouse building (our office building) have been destroyed. Fortunately, we were able to salvage our most important files, paperwork, archives, framed photos and maps, and a number of office equipment, computers, and items from the first floor. No one was on site or injured during the event.
We have had some requests about how to support the Horn Farm at this time. Most immediately, we are able to accept donations via our website: hornfarmcenter.org/donate or patreon: patreon.com/hornfarm We will likely need other support in the form of volunteering, supplies, and professional services. We will share more and keep everyone up to date as our needs and path forward become more clear.
We believe that our power and our resilience lies in our relationships. We have a long road ahead of us, but we know the future is bright. In my short time leading the farm, I have seen so many of you offer your passion, talent, and sweat, blood, and tears to this organization, because you all truly believe in the work we do. I am absolutely certain that together we will persevere. Let the ashes of this tragedy be fertile soil for our future growth and community.
