The Barnyard Weed Warriors Headquarters will now be based out of Longton, Kansas, a small town in Elk County, 22 miles west of Independence. The move is due to a car accident that involved Mary’s parents that claimed the life of her dad, David Powell. Mary’s mom, Shirley was severely injured in the wreck; multiple broken bones, including 15 ribs, sternum, collar bone and hand as well as 2 brain bleeds.
After 7 days in ICU, three days in the trauma continuing care and 5 days in Via Christi Rehabilitation Hospital, Mary was able to bring her mother home and will be caring for her, the next couple months. After her mother requested that Mary move in with her, it was decided that the Barnyard Weed Warriors base will also be moved, which means all the goats, horses and dogs are moving south. We will continue to travel the state to do weed and brush control and we have added Goat Team 2 this past fall, so we can get to those who need the goats to work their properties. Our main contact phone number & email will remain the same as will our Facebook page.
