Kickstarter Update... The old sign & trees came down yesterday in preparation for the entrance! This grand oak was bitter sweet to see come down. It was required by IDOT to create a safe entrance and was on the plan to come down when Route 2 is widened . We have the privilege of repurposing this beauty. I think we will need a sawmill LOL. Enrique Tree Removal did an amazing job - thank you!!!!AND A BIG thank you to everyone that supported us!!! We are making headway #oaktree #treeremoval #projectunderway @kickstarter #entrance #giants @barnstormerdistillery #whiskey #bourbon #barrel #oakbarrel
