About this project
Green Valleys Effort To Help
WE NEED TO GET OUR WARM CLIMATE VEGETABLES PLANTED BY THE END OF MAY!!!!! PLEASE HELP!!!! We are three highly motivated people with a goal to help our community and our land with organic produce/ free range chicken farm. We have recently obtained 20 acres of land that has been in my wife's family for over a 100 years. It was a fully functional farm until her grandfather passed away. We want to bring the farm back, we all miss the fresh vegetables, we all grew up farming but we figure it skipped a generation with our parents. We want to do it the green way though. We have spent all our money getting the taxes current, getting the deed switched over, and filing all necessary papers. We own the land free and clear, but we need help with the expenses of starting our crops and our free range no cage chickens. We are so tired of seeing chickens in tiny cages crammed in the back of trucks. We have the will and the space to do what we can to help and thats what we want to do. We have some Items they just need work. We have a tractor that needs some work. We have a well that needs some work. We have a storage shed that needs some work. We are willing to do ALL manual labor, we just need help with the parts and material. With your help we can start something good here. We can get a start on turning these 20 acres into something special. Your funds will help with the following:
- Tractor Repair
- Fencing for Chickens
- Chickens and Organic Feed
- Well Repair
- Organic Composts
- Organic Soil
- Organic Seeds
- Organic Pest Control
- Tools like shovels and wheelbarrows
- Gas to Get Around
No Chicken Deserves The Way Mass Production Treats Them
Please Help Us Give Chickens The Life They Deserve
The money will help us help our town and environment. We will provide low cost vegetables and eggs to all the people we can and we will work hard to make a difference so when anyone of you that help us think about the money you donated you will know it was money well spent.
Risks and challenges
Well there is always the weather. We have a natural spring on our property and a well that we are going to repair with our money if funded so drought will not be an issue. I will carry buckets of water from one end of the property to the other if need be. We will monitor the plants every day and are aware of organic nutrients and pest control. We will do everything humanly possible to get through any of these obstacles. Farming is always unpredictable but we will not give up.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
