• The barn after the fire

Hugh Amano is reporting on his blog, Food on the Dole, that Crystal and Dan Nells’s C & D Family Farms suffered a barn fire Monday night that killed two pigs and a piglet, though fortunately the other three pigs and twelve piglets that were in the barn managed to escape. As Amano points out, this is a major loss for such a small farm. But if you want to support the farm by buying some of their products, they’ll be selling at the Lincoln Park High School parking lot (2001 N. Orchard) tomorrow from 9 to 11 AM (there’s a list of their products here, though it seems unlikely that they’ll have everything on the very extensive list).
