Goat Protection







Almost exactly 5 years after Hurricane Maria's islandwide destruction, Hurricane Fiona hit Puerto Rico with massive amounts of rain and/or steady wind gusts over 100 mph for over 24 hours from September 18 to 19. Unfortunately, my farm was again hit extremely hard and looks like a war zone: landslides; hundreds of trees snapped in half; thousands of branches that will need to be removed; my newly built greenhouse and nursery structure again destroyed.

I am just starting to survey the overall damage (the back of my farm is currently not accessible) but based on previous experiences, it looks like it will take about 3 years to clean up the farm + repair the damage. Aside of loosing rare tropical fruit species, the damage to structures + labor needed will cost at least $25,000.
