Hey everybody- happy Sunday! You all know that I’m a man of few words so I will make this brief. It’s been really neat messaging and even meeting new friends and followers of the farm. A few folks have asked the same questions so I thought I would take a minute to do a whole group introduction to kind of help you put a ‘face with a name’ or so to say. This is my story: I’m Lester Morrow, a school teacher and coach by day and I do my best to run a small hobby farm by night. I am a farmer but not in the traditional sense; I don’t raise my animals to eat.

Less than two years ago I was on ‘top of the world’ with my career, relationship, finances, family, and health when from out of nowhere my world was devastated by flood waters from Hurricane Harvey. Animals make me happy Humans make my head hurt. For three days I was evacuated and not allowed back home, cursed with the last thing I could remembered being having to leave my beloved fur family out to fend for themselves with water surrounding our place and working itself into our home.
I had received a photo taken from a neighbor as they were evacuated with water over my six foot fence, at that point I began to mourn the loss of my babies, especially the short-legged ones I call “The Littles.” Once the flood waters receded and I was let back into the neighborhood, I found myself at instant rock bottom having lost my home and farm, and most of my beloved fur family. It sent me into a depression that I still to this day struggle with.
It was total strangers and a few surviving animals that pushed me forward and helped me find strength and courage to rebuild. Need a Farm t-shirt with so many animals being abandoned or lost in the flood, or in some cases owners dealing with their own damaged property and couldn’t adequately care for their pets, a group of amazing individuals helped to turn my farm into a farm animal sanctuary where we offered these surviving animals a forever home.
