My name is Cody Gaines. I'm twenty-seven years old. I was raised in a lower middle class family in northeastern Ohio. My father was a structural iron worker. Due to health issues my mother was unable to work.
Ever since I was a young boy I dreamed of living on a farm in the woods. My parents and I, would drive out to the country and look at properties on the weekends for something to do. We knew that we'd never be able to afford any of the places we looked at,but we always went anyhow.
My career has followed in my father' footsteps... I currently build bridges for a living and erected steel buildings before that. I've been able to save a little money from my wages. At the rate I'm going now it will take me around forty-five years to be able to have enough saved to buy my homestead.
Part of my plan for the homestead is to set aside a portion of the property to run a non-profit farm to produce healthy, clean fed, and quality meat,eggs, and produce to ship to food pantries. I've depended on them through a lot of my life and would like to give back to the cause. These are all items that are essential to your diet, yet very seldom ever donated to pantries for distribution to those in need.
Please, help me reach my dream!
I'm not really sure what to say right now....ha,ha! So,on that note, I think I'll just say some prayers and say good day!
