1 min read

The U.S.D.A reports that only a few Black owned farms that are 1,000 acres or more. Freedom Acres Ranch owned by Nicole and Courtney Mallery is one of them.

In 2023, Nicole and Courtney Mallery were on the verge of losing their ranch—for being Black in the wrong town. In 2020, the couple purchased the foreclosed estate, but on the first day of moving in they were met with hostility from a neighbor who expressed their disapproval for them being there. The angst grew into what is described as white domestic terrorism for two years.

For the tour, they showed their expansive estate in Colorado and detailed the extensive community work that sprung from their ordeal—of which is not over.
