Remnant Fields

The owners of a farm dedicated to helping those in need is now asking for the community’s help in return.

Animals are used to giving those with disabilities and veterans with PTSD a sense of healing, but the owners have recently had some setbacks.

“It’s super close to my heart. It would mean the world to us. It really would,” said Brian Hunt, co-founder of Remnant Fields.

The non-profit organization’s mission is to use animals to help create an environment of hope for people desperately trying to move out of a pattern of brokenness into a life of empowerment.

They were recently forced to find a new home. That’s why Hunt, who is a disabled veteran, is asking for help to get his ministry back on solid ground.

“We need stump removal obviously, landscaping. We need some shelters, some modified shelters,” Hunt said.

Meanwhile, members of the community are already doing their part to help.

“We’re going to do some tree stump removal and try to help them with some fundraising,” said Matthew Gilmet, owner of M and M Stump Removal.

Gilmet showed up on Oct. 12 to remove those tree stumps.

“They’re in this every day to help these kids out and wounded soldiers. So my part is so small it really doesn’t even reflect on the whole project,” Gilmet said.

As for Hunt, he said it feels great to be able to offer hope and healing to veterans with PTSD and other people with special needs. Now he is hoping with your help he can continue his mission for years to come.

“We’re extremely excited for the community to get behind us and see what we can actually do here,” Hunt said.
