Benefit: Vendor Day At The Farm June 27
(Food, Live Music, Family Fun)
ORLINDA TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – As with many businesses across the nation, COVID-19 has taken a toll and one Robertson County farmer is doing anything they can to stay afloat. A Go Fund Me has raised about $25,000. Now the family is having Vendor Day At The Farm to raise money to keep the farm going until the economy reignites.
The Groves Family Dairy farm in Orlinda was just weeks away from shutting down, according to the farm owner Randall Groves. After exhausting everything else, the family set up the Go Fund Me page to try and save their farm and their home.
Groves Family Dairy has been supplying milk across Middle Tennessee for 9 years, but COVID-19 pulled the rug out from under them. The Groves situation made CBS news when News Channel 5 ran their story Friday. FULL STORY
“It’s like pouring gas in your car every day, and never moving,” Randall Groves, told Smokey Barn News’ partner News 5. “I’ve never experienced anything like it.”
