MCEWEN, TN (WSMV) — Clean Genes is a small, one-acre farm in McEwen, Tennessee. It's where Jason and Sara Kleihans grow produce.

Thanks to a lot of help from their friends, they can continue to do that, even after a tornado partially destroyed their operation.

After the tornado, Jason was initially ready to give up and return to his job in the oil industry. But then, a friend started a GoFundMe for the family. It quickly raised over $11,000.
