Update #5

We Did It!

Comment

$25,000.00 and a BARN. WE DID IT. THANK YOU ALL !!!

Your participation made this happen, without all of your pledges, notes, e-mails, tweets, likes, messages, tips, articles, etc., we would not be here.

Today is a monumental day for our farm and for local food. We are so grateful to know that the community we speak of exists and that we are all a part of it. The barn will be the heart of our farm for years to come and it is hard to express just how important it is to us. 

We do have some associated costs for shipping, Kickstarter fees, etc. that are variable and difficult to get a fixed number on. Those costs will use a portion of the total and while we did account for some of it we want to be sure we outfit the barn as needed so it serves its purpose from day one. We want to remind you that pledges can be increased by clicking “manage pledge” and we’ll contact you to confirm the reward you would like added.

We are so excited, this barn will really complete our farm and make us much more efficient. We can’t wait to show it off! We’ll post pictures of the progress for those of you who can’t visit.

There are still 24 hours to go so please keep posting on Facebook and telling more people about the Barn that we are building! THANK YOU!


Update #4

The Final Hours!

Comment

We have reached another milestone and are now over 90% funded!

We continue to be blown away by the efforts of our supporters to make our barn a reality. The past two days have been unbelievable; so many of you have been talking up our campaign, posting on Facebook, and demonstrating incredible enthusiasm!

We can't thank you enough for backing our project. Some of you have even upped your pledges! If all of our supporters (you beautiful people), were to put in an additional $10, that would be more than half of the $2,000 that stands between us and putting shovels in the ground. You help us reach the goal while ensuring that you get your fun rewards. Win win!

We have 35 hours to go and every pledge, every penny, and every Facebook post makes a difference. We can do it!
