Project 573: Caught in the Middle

For the last 10 years, Tom and Lisa Schlueter have maintained and cared for Westover Farms, a trout farm and fly fishing resort in Steelville, Mo. To the public and its customers, Westover has generally stayed the same with he exception of a few developments and renovations, but its internal operations have changed drastically. The Schlueters witnessed the recession firsthand after the previous owner lost Westover to Premiere Bank, which failed in October of 2010. Although Westover’s ownership has changed several times during its 100-year span, they’re now owned by the FDIC. Still, the Schlueters’ commitment to the farm has not changed.

Here’s what the trip looks like:
