In early November,  Jeremy, Jennifer, and Austin Taylor lost their house, barns, and most of their belongings. The family and their livestock are safe, and insurance funds will cover the cost of a new doublewide, but the new home won’t be here for months. Please consider supporting the Go Fund Me account to benefit the Taylors. Valley Ag in Mills River is collecting funds to provide food for the Taylors’ animals. Animals R Us Veterinary Clinic is collecting hay or other provisions that people would like to donate for this family. The family has cattle, goats, chickens and dogs.

Jeremy was active in the original Barnyard Bandits 4-H Club in the 1990s. Jeremy’s son, Austin, age 15, grew up showing goats and cattle. Austin was active in the Barnyard Bandits 4-H Club until Jeremy started having health problems a few years ago. Austin continues to show goats in local fairs.
