CANTON, TX (KLTV) -

In April of this year, seven tornadoes hit East Texas. One went straight through the property of Yesterland Farm. Owner Kama Bozeman said she and her husband were on the property when the tornado hit.

"We were back in our house and ended up in the closet. And we were really surprised at the amount of damage when we came out and found pretty much the front of the farm destroyed," she said.

The owners quickly realized the storm affected the majority of their farm.

"As we came up, we found the front barn completely gone, [...] the roof was gone off of the big birdie's barn in the back [...] you know it was lots of years of work gone just in a matter of minutes," she said. 

Bozeman and her husband value the history and traditions of their farm. With the upcoming holidays, Bozeman said she reflects on how grateful she is to have her farm up and running. 

She said she is thankful for all of the people that helped prepare the farm for this holiday season.

"We've had some great staff that when I say is God-sent, and I'm not using that as a term; I mean they were sent by God to help us overcome this, and with their help we've come back bigger and better than ever," she said.

Yesterland Farm is set to open Friday for their Christmas Tree season.
