Thanks for giving!

This holiday season, I'm so grateful for YOU! Thank you for supporting my little dream and this big idea. With your help, I'm building a place out here for young farmers to practice their craft, prove their model and their market. I'll help them sharpen up their business plans, explore available grants and funding... all with the goal that these folks will be able to take what they've learned and experienced here to the bank. There's a lot of agricultural land out there that is and will be up for grabs soon. Let's put it in the hands of a new generation of environmental stewards. We think we need food!

Your donations will support the licensure of our pierogi kitchen, a sustaining income source, and this campaign has helped us to start reaching young land-based entrepreneurs: applications for our first "Roosting" season are beginning to populate our inbox. 

Thank you

If you haven't received your personal "Thanks!" email, please check your spam folder for This is a new crowd-funding platform and it hasn't worked out all the kinks quite yet, so I am likely in need of your shipping address to fulfill your rewards! 

With love and gratitude,
