The Promise of a Pot of Gold?
Last evening as we went out to the garden to pick the raspberries, a rainbow arched across the sky.
Gordita smiled happily at the scene.
As usual, Zinnie hung out with Gordita while we plucked the berries.
Pretty sweet to pick berries under a rainbow! Could it be a happy omen?!? We have just launched our ambitious Kickstarter campaign to raise funding for a certified kitchen, which will allow us to expand our baking operations, host events with farm-fresh food, and offer culinary classes. We have been working toward this ever since we moved to the farm almost 6 years ago. Now, in 30 days we need to raise $25,000 to make this dream a reality! We are stunned by the generous support we have received in the first two days - approaching 10% of our goal! ---but we still have a long way to go. Will there be a pot of gold at the end of this rainbow?
To see our Kickstarter video and campaign details, or maybe even make a pledge and receive a fun farm-related reward, visit the Squash Blossom Farm Kitchen Kickstarter page.
Thank you! I promise to post relentlessly about our progress!
In September 2008, we dived into our dream of creating a small, sustainable farm. Neither of us has previous farming experience, but we have enthusiasm and many ideas for this little 10-acre farmstead.
