  1. And in Zimbabwe and South Africa the rape and murder of the white race and their children to take their land their farm shall hear that from the white race

  2. Can somebody please explain the legality of being kicked off your own land because a co-owner left it to somebody else?

  3. I wanted to watch this, as it seemed very interested. However, I could not get past the first word. As soon as I heard that all to familiar voice, I had to stop the video!
    Am I the only one, but that guys voice drives me NUTS! I can't stand his voice. It's hard to hear the message when you can't get past that shrill and whining voice!!!

    But, as always, that's just my opinion! :)))

  4. Being a farmer, we always pay attention to who is bidding. If it is a family member connected to the farm or farm assets we do not bid. Usually nobody will bid against them. Some unscrupulous auctioneers have ghost bidders to drive the price up or often out-of towners bid until they realize what is going on and most gracefully bow out.

  5. Nice story, ruined by a cold hearted, disinterested, monotone announcer, with all the passion and excitement of a slug.

  6. This happened a lot during the great depression. Banks were forced to foreclose on mortgaged farms, then auction them. The neighbors would show up, somebody would bid $1. If a stranger made a move to top that bid, he was stared down or roughed up. The $1 bid would buy the place, then it was given back to the original owner, debt free. Neighbors cared for each other.

  7. I really thought that these times of people being compassion over someone else's problems were long gone but I was wrong God bless my American the greatest country in the world !!

  8. Having lived more than half my life in Nebraska I was not surprised. That area of the country is overlooked because they don't make a lot of fuss, they do the right thing. Please take a moment and search 'Nebraska Strong' and pray for them with me. Many families are looking at loosing their farms over the flooding this year.

  9. American values right there. Only in America things like this can happen. And only White people would do like this as well. American values means White values. I am Asian.

  10. Great story. Shows how people can help. Farmers deserve a heavenly blessing. I hope their crops are plentiful

  11. Lucky there weren’t any fuck face iowans there they’d buy the land. They love crossing state lines buying anything like assholes.

  12. Sounds nice but i see only a few picture and you telling some story is it true where is the proof when and where did this happen?
    I have a real overwhelming feeling a lot of the story's you tell are made up.

  13. The best of humanity that should be punctuated! Too much sadness and cruelty in the world. I love this story.

  14. Heart warming and very touching story. Farmers are a breed of there own. They feed the masses they help any body that has broken down or has had a misshap at the side of the road. One day we shall be indebted to help the farmers when they need help. Community spirit can have a deep and lasting Inpact. I for one am grateful for the farmers wether animal food or even vineyards …. THANK YOU , you till the earth that God provided , you work the land that God provided .your hands are instruments of God's will. Some words similar to these were spoken at my grandfather's funeral. I'll never forget that day. My grandfather knew so many people the church was pact. We use to be farmers it's still in my blood unfortunatly I've no land to plant rake an ho. My parents don't have the passion I inherited from my grandfather. My land is lost. The three masons have seen to .let of the demise of my family. Hopefully God shall reveal all when he sees fit. I might be dead by the time the truth comes out. But boy have I had one massive fight I stood no chance of wining. Grenville raligh drake would all be stood on my side if they walked the lands still today. Londonderry uk. Heartland.king Arthur's cave . Stollen by an artest who blackmailed and changed the coarse of history with lies greed and deception. His great grandson a master mason still today. I bite My tounge but for what reason I'm uncertain. God bless you all.

  15. I really like this story it shows there still is really good people out their and I’m glad he got the farm and land back.

  16. If the true owner designated another family member then there was obviously conflicts and mistrust. Not all sons or daughters deserve inheritance especially if they are criminals or are just money hungry leeches. There is more to this story than reported here. 😕

  17. This story reminds me of an episode of Little House on the Prairie.

    Those farmers did an admirable deed.
