They were one of, if not, the first Certified Organic Farm in Northern New Jersey. They work harder than I have ever worked a day in my life. Each person is involved, in some way, in the day to day running of the farm.
Right now, they need our help via votes at Chase Mission Main Street Grants.
My niece Caitlan writes on the blog:
If our farm receives 250 votes by October 17th we are entered to win a grant of $150,000.00!
(Note from Maggie: as I write this they are at 198 votes)
It would be awesome if you could vote for us, share with your friends and help us on the path to reach our new goals!
To offer some perspective, if we win this grant, we could rebuild our Certified Organic dairy herd, have better fencing, get more equipment for hay-making and growing produce, and be better equipped to find more land in the future. This would help us to make money toward our long-term goals of a farm-to-table restaurant, an on-farm event space and education program, and a successful dairy business.
That's my plea for Tuesday. I will keep you posted on what happens next!
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE ~ and, please share!
