Finals Week! Give aways of T-shirt, Mug & More...

Posted by Walter Jeffries (Creator)

We are now in our last week of our Kickstarting the Butcher Shop at Sugar Mountain Farm. We made our initial goal of $25,000 for the butcher shop equipment thanks to all of you!

We made our second goal of an additional $5,000 for pouring the abattoir tower. Thank you, again!!

Some people have asked how high can we go? The sky's the limit. There are more goals ahead such as pouring the floors of the abattoir, the roof of the abattoir, etc. Help spread the word to as many people as possible in this last week so as to raise additional funds for the higher levels where all backers can get additional rewards added on to rewards packages such as more sausage, hot dogs, bacon and other Goodies.

Spread the Word Game:

Win: T-shirts, mugs, DVDs, books plus more meat and other goodies on rewards tiers.

Goal: Get the word out in this last week. Let's blast past a new level to help fund the next step: construction of the abattoir to bring slaughter on-farm!

The Message: Kickstart the butcher shop at Sugar Mountain Farm for pastured pigs Pls RT

      My son in MA alerted me to this project. I live in Decatur GA but grew up in Rutland VT and am about all things Vermont. I wish you all success in your venture and have made a contribution.

      Just posted on FB. So happy for your family. Been buying locally raised beef and chickens here in CT. Would love to allow our farmers to build their own butcher shop. Best to your beautiful family! Hope to come visit some day!
