We are hosting a community meeting to bring everyone up to date with our progress with The Farmstand. For those who may not have been following along, we recently got our farm re-zoned so that we can open an on site local foods grocery store called The Farmstand. We will sell flowers, eggs and produce that we grow on our farm as well as source many other products from local farmers across the state. We plan to have humanley raised meats, eggs, cheese, fruit, vegetables, ice cream, coffee, tea, breads, jams, jellies, kombucha (just to name a few!). Our goal is to increase access to local food year round for our community and to create another market for local farmers.
Rezoning was a long process but we were blown away by the support from the city and community members, some of which came to speak at our public hearing. The re-zone was only the first step in our process, now we are getting ready to enter our fundraising phase where we will raise the funds needed to complete renovations to The Farmstand to get it up and running.
We want to update all of our supporters on the current state of the project, our plans for fundraising and how you can help us meet our goal. We would like all interested city officials, neighbors, community members, local farmers and potential vendors to attend. Help us spread the word about this meeting and our plans! Visit our event on Facebook to share with your friends!
Do you have any questions about our project and plans? Come and ask us!
Hope to see you all there and we can't wait to share our plans with you!
