Dear Farm Community,
The farm needs your help. Please bring the “Community” to Community Supported Agriculture by supporting the farm today.
The challenge: 50 CSA memberships of $200 by March 7th. Yes, folks, that is in 7 days.
Last night in this area there was a high wind recording of 90 mph and rainfall up to 7″. This in combination with already sodden ground and living on a hill-top brought disaster to the primary greenhouse on the farm. Our 30×100 beauty now looks like a giant twisted spider.
This is the greenhouse that is supposed to be home to our seedlings and early greens. It is urgent that we rebuild right away.
We are still paying the tolls on the 2009 rains that brought disaster to a huge percentage of our crops. This has left precious few dollars in the farm bank account for start-up this year, which already had this farmer worried. I was counting on selling early seedlings and for a fantastic early greens harvest to help get us through some major start-up expenses. Now, we have lost that potential, as well as the added cost of a new house to build.
Don’t forget, despite last season’s blues, we had a fantastic selection at the farmers’ markets and had our second highest year of gross sales yet (I remind you this says nothing of expenses). WE can still have a fantastic 2010 year! Regardless of challenge, this farmer can produce, but I need your help!
Timing is everything!
