The couple have lived in the upper valley for almost two years, operating The Sandy Spade Farm. The organic farm produces a variety of vegetables, plus chickens, turkeys, and eggs.

“It was a total loss,” said Tremper. “We lost everything.”

Most of their possessions were not covered by insurance, so they finally agreed to allow family friends Steve and Corina Sahlin to organize a donation campaign. Money is what’s needed most.

Checks in any amount can be made payable to either Brandie Lambdin or Bradley Tremper, and mailed to: The Sahlins, P.O. Box 123, Marblemount, WA 98267.

Tremper said he and Lambdin intend to relocate to a new place in Marblemount after they get their affairs in order. The Sandy Spade Farm will continue to operate, though “not at a high scale this year,” said Tremper. “But we’re definitely staying in the valley. We’ve loved it here.”

Sahlin put out the word on Facebook and the response thus far has been encouraging, to say the least. “If many people give even a small amount, it will add up,” she wrote.

    I don’t have a lot of $ but I do have access to computer systems that I fix up and restore for kids in the area and would be willing to help them out with any computer needs
