Due to recent storms, Autonomy Farms south of Lamont is facing some hard times due to flooded land.

The storm that hit on February 17 was more than what the farm could handle, according to their GoFundMe page.

The 20 acre farm was hit with runoff that ruined all the vegetable crops, killed their flock of chickens, and covered most of the farm with one to four feet of standing water.

The farm has currently raised $15,400 of their $45,000 goal on GoFundMe.

 

They are currently working with the Farm Service Agency to apply for grants to help recover the costs of what was lost and clean up.
