At 10:38 PM on August 17th part of what became the Hennessey Fire and the LNU Lightning Complex ran through their property. The scene was apocalyptic. They had no warning. The only reason Jasmine and her family survived, at all, was the fact that Jasmine had a window open and heard the fire approaching the house.
Beekeeper, Clay Ford, tragically lost 73 of 81 bee hives when the LNU Complex fire raced through Pleasants Valley last week.

Clay has spent 8 years cultivating and caring for the bees. Clay admitted, "It was heartbreaking to see the devastation. The bees never had a chance."
Clay vows to reestablish bee colonies and in his words, "The bees will fly again!"

Former city slickers, they have been learning about regenerative agriculture and rescuing farm animals since moving to Vacaville two years ago. They had been in the process of becoming a non-profit in order to help care for more animals and to welcome volunteers onto the property. Their ultimate goal is to connect trauma survivors and their families with their rescued farm animals, especially in the first responder community.

We are asking for funds to help us rebuild. Whether it's back on Cantelow Rd in Vacaville or somewhere else..we are desperate to be reunited with the animals that we promised to care for, for the rest of their lives.
The people & the animals are okay but they lost their home, their barn, and two 5th wheels.
Mark & Kendall are fine but they lost their house.
La Borgata lost their vineyard 2 weeks before harvest, their winery, their distillery, all of the equipment and inventory.
I’m writing this post with a heavy heart filled with disbelief. On August 19, 2020 at 1:30am we woke up to the heavy smell of burnt ashes and the realization of a massive wildfire in front of our eyes. The only thing I could think of in that moment was getting my family out of the house as fast and safely as possible. With nothing else besides the clothes on our backs, we evacuated from our homes. We were filled with terror and tears, not knowing if or when we’ll be able to return.
The people & animals are okay. They lost several out-buildings.

Once the smoke has cleared, there’s a lot more to do than just assess the damage. The steps you take in the aftermath of a natural disaster can help position you, your farm and your community for a healthy and equitable recovery. From financial aid to land management practices, these resources will help get you back on your feet and back to farming the food we need..
With the farming community in shock and grieving, we have shifted the focus of Bounty of the County. Bounty of the County: Stronger Together will raise funds for those farmers and growers who have lost property, crops and animals to the wildfires. 100% of all donations received through Sustainable Solano through the end of September will go to help our Solano County farmers, ranchers and wine growers. The cooking demonstrations, presentations and dining promotions originally planned will be delayed, starting Sept. 1.
