Abattoir Towering - $30K T-shirt - Onward & Upward

Posted by Walter Jeffries (Creator)

Ben & Hope's Cartoon Info-Graphic of Abattoir Tower Funded (zoom)

Wow! Thank you everyone! Not only is the butcher shop funded but we now have enough to pour the concrete for the next section of that abattoir tower. This brings us one step closer to on-farm slaughter in addition to on-farm butchering (meat cutting & sausage making).

Hitting the $30K goal means that everyone at the $25 or higher level by the end of our project (May 15th) will get an extra FarmImage Goodie. If you wish to increase your pledge you can do so at any time this week and still get the extra Goodie.

New Goal: $35K green line to pour the floor and some partitions of the abattoir. I've been experimenting with the shipping and found I can pack a little more meat in the box. If we can get to that height I'll include extra bonus sausage for all meat backers at the $65 level and above plus a mystery goodie for everyone at levels $30 and above.

Congratulations to Bing Shen who won the $30,000 T-shirt! Now that we're going into our final week I have some great games planned for more T-shirts and other fun stuff so stay tuned for that update tomorrow...

      Hi Charles & Shirley, We're thankful for yours and everyone's backing! The ice has melted off the mountain. Now that the first phase of spring fencing is done we've been working on getting form work tightened up for the concrete pour that will close in the initial meat cutting space of the butcher shop. Photos soon! Cheers, -Walter

      Shirley and I are so pleased that you made your goal and that we were able to join with the other donators in your great project. We will be looking forward to the time we can order some of your great pork selections.
