    4. Creator DeborahK on March 3, 2012

      PHEW! I was positive all would be well, but still watched the last few minutes like a hawk!

    5. Creator Deborah Mahon on March 3, 2012

      Congrats! Would love to come to the farm...and bring you a cookbook. You and I seem to have a lot in common; I'm a farm girl and I too have a Kickstarter project "The Gourmet Farm Girl Cookbook"
      Here's to your success and hopefully mine in the near future!

      Kraizy happy for you Suzanne! Can hardly wait to watch the transformation. Vicarious living at its best! So wish I could manage a trip for the Party on the Farm...not to mention the classes! So happy to have been able to support such a great project.

    7. Creator Linda in New Mexico on March 3, 2012

      Suzanne: I am so thrilled for you. The money I pledged was a kindness done to me paid forward to you. I hope you realize what an inspiration you are. How special it is to feel like I am a part of your blogging life. I swear if I ever get to WV from NM I will come by to see the wonder that is your farm. Hug Pokey for me.....don't tell the others but she and Coco are my favs.
      Much love and halledamlujah girlfriend. Oma Linda

    14. Creator DeborahK on March 2, 2012

      I'm so hoping that you get just a few more contributions to take it up to an even number over the top! Just near $300 more and you'll be at a nice even number! I wish I could do it myself,but I'm tapped. Maybe a few others will be able to make it a round number over. I'm so proud of you and hope things will come out to a nice round number! Yahooo!

    15. Creator Carrie Stenvik Johnston on February 23, 2012

      Thank you, Steven! Classes can be put off as long as you need to--they never expire! :) Thank you for serving our country!

    40. Creator steven skaggs on February 16, 2012


      I'm proud to have the opportunity to support you! I may have to put off the classes until 2013, as I'm stuck in Afghanistan currently. Best of luck and I hope you reach and exceed your goal.

    41. Creator Sharon Harrelson Brown on February 15, 2012

      You're almost there! We can do this, come on, fellow Chickens in the Road members!
      Let's help Suzanne complete this task!

    42. Creator grammieearth on February 15, 2012

      Suzanne :)
      You have shared so many methods to help us take better/healthier care of ourselves, our families, our friends and our resources. I almost envy the 4-H'ers in the area...they will see and learn so much from you and your farm. You have inspired a large flock of peeps and will inspire many, many more. Thank you.

      :) Pam

    43. Creator wvsuzanne (deleted) on February 15, 2012

    44. Creator falkenstine (deleted) on February 13, 2012

      Go, go, GOOOO! Suzanne! I'm so proud to see that your up to 69% after only 12 days. Thats 2/3 of the journey!! This is just amazing to me. I know you're going to make your goal, but I can't stifle the desire to be your cheerleader!! Keep up the good work!!!

    45. Creator DeborahK on February 12, 2012

      I'm really pulling for your success Suzanne! I'll pledge again after the first if my budget allows, I know it all will get subtracted at once on the final day, but I just need to plan it this way.

    46. Creator falkenstine (deleted) on February 10, 2012

      wow, almost half-way there and still 3 weeks to go. You're going to make it Suzanne, I have faith in you!!! :)

    47. Creator Jenny Rone on February 8, 2012

      You got me at farm, 4-H and the photos of the pyr of luck!

    48. Creator Shelley on February 7, 2012

      Good luck Suzanne - I think that the least I can do is to back your project because I have already gotten much, much more valuable information from your blog than I could ever repay you with in dollars! Who knows, maybe someday I can actually attend a workshop in your new kitchen too!

    49. Creator wvsuzanne (deleted) on February 6, 2012

      DeborahK, yes, there will be lower prices for kids camps and special prices for kids clubs!
