Giving Back

We are committed to giving a portion of everything we produce directly back to the community.

 

    • For 2022, we are committed to offering at least 10% of our entire harvest free-of-charge; either as donations or subsidized farm shares via our community partners.

With support from our patrons and the surrounding community, we hope that each year we will be able to give a larger portion of our total production away FOR FREE.

A longer term goal is to move away entirely from a for-profit model, because we believe access to healthy, chemical-free food should be available to everyone. For information how to participate, either as a financial supporter or as a recipient, please get in touch.

 

With support from:
