Why Amy Schumer Bought Back Her Family Farm
Last month, comedienne Amy Schumer posted a video of herself on Instagram captioned: “Video from the farm when I was running away in the cornfield and my dad was taunting me because I wanted him to come with me. We lost the farm when we lost everything else. But today I got to buy it back for him.” She also posted a video of herself telling her father the farm was back in his name.
Schumer has been open in the past about her family’s financial struggles; her family went bankrupt when she was nine and moved frequently as her parents struggled to stay afloat. While Schumer didn’t specify where or when the farm was sold exactly, she grew up on Long Island, which has rich history of farming.
