Peppermint Jim and his farm are facing foreclosure but his intend was to demonstrate that regardless of everything that is going on at the farm, and regardless the fact he may lose everything he dreamed of doing, it is not a reason to quite or give up. “It will only be through cooperation and team work that any good and positive change can and will be done, no matter the circumstances,” Jim said. “I have only survived through this situation by helping others, it has been the balance to the insanity and despair and fear which people are gravitating in today’s world,” he continued.
