Why Donate?

WOW, a great beginning to the growing season! Potatoes, onions, beans, and squash are being planted each week, with more to get in the dirt. Beans, Peas, and Sweet Corn will begin being planted within the next couple of weeks. We are on track with a record harvest this year. The rain is working its miracle and helping us grow our fruits and vegetables; in fact our fruit trees even have some buds on them. It is a great time to be on the Farm. Schedule your time today to volunteer and help us to continue to "Feed thy Neighbor" If you aren't available to come on down and volunteer, please think about giving us a tax deductible donation to help us with the expenses around the Farm.
