Today is the end of our campaign for "Barns are for People, Too." We reached over 25% of our goal, over $38,000. Since we did not reach our target, you will not be charged for your pledges, and the farm receives nothing. Although we are disappointed that we did not reach our goal, we are thrilled that over 600 people came together to support us; many people faithfully spread the word through social media; and the farm staff and Learning Center staff came together regularly in passionate resolve to promote the project.
So much heart went into "Barns are for People, Too." Although the target was not reached, those of us who worked on the campaign will move forward to achieve our goal of making our barns safe, functional and beautiful for the thousands who visit each year.
We plan to re-group soon, and devise a future strategy for getting our barns in shape. This may involve another crowdfunding campaign. You will probably hear from us again, and we hope that you will again offer support to this important vision for the farm and the greater community.
Let's Stay in Touch.

Thank you so much for your pledges and other support for "Barns are for People, Too." We have taken your gifts to heart.
The barns still need work; we will make it happen. That's what farmers do.
