We recently received a very generous donation from a friend/customer/local food supporter. In fact, a big part of how we've been able to buy this farm is due to donations from a variety of supporters. We took a big leap of faith when we started this journey and you all have been there supporting us (on every level) since the beginning.
For the first time since we began farming we are finally in the position to start giving back. We'd like to use part of this donation to reinvest in our community of shareholders.
This donation will be used to sponsor the down payment for 4 new shareholders. In an effort to "spread the love" we will pay the $50 reservation fee for 4 new shares.
Please keep in mind 2 things:
1 - You will still need to make a payment plan for the remaining balance due.
2 - We do not have "sales", we have already priced our shares as low as we can, this is a gift to us that we are sharing with you.
To repeat myself, this is not a marketing tactic, Our only plan with this is to "pay forward" some of the amazing love and generosity that we have seen. We have no idea what response this will receive, please allow us at least 1 week to make our decision.
If you, or someone you know, is interested. Please get in touch with your questions. Our goal is to help 4 families that would not otherwise be able to afford to participate in CSA.
We are busily preparing for the 2014 Summer CSA season. Thousands of seedlings have been started, with more getting started every week. We are looking forward to the CSA season beginning in mid-June, we'll have the exact start date pinned down as we get closer.
We still have a few shares left for the 2014 season, so if you are interested get in touch with us soon.
If you have not heard the news we will no longer be participating in the Kootenai County Farmers Market as Urban Fresh Produce. As much as we enjoyed our time with the market, and will dearly miss our customers and friends, we have decided to expand our CSA program beyond what is feasible to do through the market . Please email us if you have any questions, or would just like to stay in touch: email@example.com or give us a call at (509) 738-7301.
