Help C&D Family Farms Recover From Devasting Fire Tomorrow, Jan. 30th

January 29, 2010 at 6:12 pm

Early in the morning on Monday, January 25th, the owners of C&D Family Farms, Crystal and Dan Nells, were awakened by the devasting news that one of their barns — housing pigs at the time — was engulfed in flames. C&D is located in Indiana, and the Nells, former Chicagoans, specialize in pasture- and woods-raised hogs, which they sell along with eggs, lamb and sausages. According to Hugh Amano’s blog, Food On The Dole, most pigs escaped, but unfortunately, a piglet, mother and mother-to-be, were lost.

Last-minute notice has gone out that the Nells will be at the Lincoln Park High School parking lot, tomorrow, January 30th, from 9-11 am, selling their products. Please try to make time to support C&D tomorrow and help them get back on their feet.

In the meantime, The Local Beet will keep you posted on their recovery.
