Inside the Farm

How is your approach to farming different than other farms in the same category?
The program is offered to urban youth as well as disabled veterans, and designed to teach basic horsemanship skills that will enable the participants to care for their horses, safely saddle and ride them. The kids come to our training facilities located at E & D Ranch twice a week for year round instructions

How does your different approach contribute to a long-term profitable growth strategy for your farm and other small farms like yours?
I believe when you bless others with your skills and knowledge it has a long term effect on there lives and this is priceless to me.

How would you specifically use a Mortgage Lifter Lift or Mini Lift?
I deplete all of my personal money monthly to keep up with feed and hay ,medicine and care for the horses. Since the recent bad weather in Houston along with the flooding and wind, my ranch has been damaged and lost feed and hay in the process. Because everything here is a priority as far as what to spend money on, I have been battling trying to keep my home out of for closure, weather to keep less horses, weather to sell my car, weather to delay classes, I don't know where to turn. I don't want to charge my kids or veterans for classes because as I said before my passion is people and animal care and I believe they both benefit from me keeping my program alive. I just need a lift out of the sand to pay needy bills and save our dream to successfully give back.

Please share why you are so passionate about your farm and/or farming in general.
I use my ranch to offer free therapy to veterans and kids in community, with and without disabilities. I retired as a nurse and always wanted to continue helping others. Most facilities have fees, I don't. I depend solely on donations from community organizations and local businesses. So I don't really have a revenue per say. Every since my husband died in 2013, who was the CEO of our program I have been anxious to get back to what I love, but limited funding and grieving process set me back. I am just happy to do what I Love and I know God will reward me in the end.
