GoFundMe Campaign Begins for Allegany County Farm

A GoFundMe campaign has been started to help an Allegany County farm after a fire earlier this month.
The Alfred Farmers Market started the campaign to help Mascho Homestead Farms .
The fire destroyed two chicken coops and a garage with freezers full of meat.
The cause of the fire was undetermined. While the farm has insurance, organizers say not everything that was destroyed will be covered by their policy, an approximately $40,000 gap.
It will cost a lot to test area nursing home employees.
And Cattaraugus County lawmakers aren’t sure they can do it.
The price is $75,000…. a week.
While there was no cost for the tests, it costs $100 to analyze each test. That’s $75,800 a week for twice a week testing of employees at the Pines Healthcare and Rehabilitation Centers. The county is looking at another testing offer. No COVID-19 deaths have been reported in any nursing homes in Cattaraugus County.
