Unfortunately the model of housing 10 girls and 10 boys (ages 6-18) is no longer sustainable, said Carl Brown, who was appointed interim director by the One Way Farm board.

“We needed to look at a solution that was going to be more sustainable for the future so we can serve the most amount of children," he said.

Because the model is changing, there will be a liquidation sale that includes office equipment, furniture, two pianos, two big screen televisions, computer monitors and scrapbooking materials.

The liquidation sale is Thursday, May 17. Doors open at 4:30 p.m. and the sale starts at 6 p.m. at 6131 River Road in Fairfield.
