More of Our Story

I would love to share ” more” of Our Story. This isn’t our first business, Mike and our son Shawn had started a trucking business.  Mike was still working at GM and Shawn drove one of our trucks.  We had 3 drivers and 3 trucks, learning as we went along and all was well.  We hired a driver and felt sorry for him, bought him clothes, food and kept him busy.  All he wanted to do is make a living, so we were happy.  Shawn decided to stay  home with Lucy, because of her illness. One of the drivers stole money from us and stole one of our trucks full of merchandise.  So our trust in him was shaken and so was our business.  We were too small to recover, so we filed bankruptcy.  So not only was Lucy sick, we also lost our business. This all happened 2 months before Lucy passed away.   Failure and lose were heavy on us but as our faith was tested, we kept our trust in God who had lead us to this beautiful, peaceful  Willow Tree Farm.

So Willow Tree Farm is more than what  we raise and sell here on the farm.  It is a testimony of God’s grace. So our scripture is very important to us; “Be strong and courageous, do not be terrified, do not be discouraged, for the Lord our God will be with you wherever you go.”  Joshua 1:9

I must stop and  tell you, that we have some of the strongest kids and grandchildren.  Thank you Tara, Daniel, Ryan, and Brian, we feel so blessed to have your love and support.  You have climbed each mountain and been there in each valley with us.  And for that we are eternally grateful. Love you more than you’ll ever know.

The best is yet to come,
