Help preserve the farm!
Have you ever placed a dollar bill in a jar to help someone in need? Or maybe you rounded up your grocery bill at checkout, to an even number, knowing a family might receive a turkey or ham and all the fixins for a holiday dinner, just because you cared.
FarmMade FarmSavers sole purpose is to SAVE FARMS and GROW NEW ONES. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) there are an estimated 570 million farms around the world, of which 90% are considered family farms. The future of global food security rests in the hands of these hard-working farm heroes and the people who support them. They dedicate their lives, against all odds, to bring us healthy food and fibers for our every day needs. It is a family affair and one they take quite seriously…while having a lot of fun, of course!
But, in order for farmers to do their job, it is imperative that the fabric of rural life and our heritage stay intact. Farms are in constant need of repair and innovation to keep up with our ever-growing demands. The good news is that we can help and make a difference in many important ways. Vote for legislation that aids and protects farmers. If you shop at a Farmers Market…GREAT! If you signed up for a CSA this year…AWESOME! Because farmers are notoriously independent, strong and full of pride, it is hard for them to ask for help. This is a fact. Our “donation farm jar” is a page dedicated to highlighting their stories and requests for assistance. Give a dollar or one hundred. We hope you take notice and know that the smallest acts of kindness make a difference and can be a pretty big deal to a farmer.
Saving Headline Farm- The Head Family
My name is Nicole Head and I am the daughter of Timothy Head & the granddaughter of DeWitt & Diane Head, of Headline farm.
Headline Farm has been in our family for 125 years. Due to personal issues that have come up, my father is being forced to put our farmland up for auction.
It breaks my heart to see all of my father and grandfathers hard work and dedication having to be taken away from them. This is more than just a farm. This is our home. We are surrounded by this land everywhere we look.
It is heartbreaking for our family. If we can raise enough money, I’m hoping I can save our family farm.
The funds will be collected and withdrawn by- myself – and used to help my family reach our end goal: keeping our farm in our family and continuing generations of Headline Farm.
Any amount will help. Thoughts and prayers are also appreciated during this time.
3 Fiddles Farm Fire Recovery Fund
On September 5th the Bridger Foothills wildfire swept across our farm.
All our infrastructure was destroyed. We’ve been farming for our community for 12 years and want to rebuild our farm to continue growing great food for our community. We need to replace all our tools, equipment, fencing, and irrigation system. We need your help to keep our dream going.
We look forward to many more years of growing great chemical free natural food for Bozeman.
Thanks for your love and support.
Help New Hope Stables Save The Herd
A horse can be different things to different people. For some, a horse is a means to get from one place to another or a tool to work the fields. For some of us, a horse is a friend, a confidante, a trusted partner who shares in our adventures and knows us sometimes better than we know ourselves. The bond we have with our horses can’t be explained to those who’ve never experienced this kind of relationship.
Treasure is eighteen now. It is extremely hard to put into words how much Treasure has impacted so many lives. Since 2004, Treasure has been living on our farm and teaching countless amounts of children how to ride. Treasure is usually the first horse that beginners start out on. There is something about Treasure that makes children and adults fall in love with horses and horseback riding. Not only does she teach children how to ride, Treasure always gives students a reason to come back.
Please help us get Treasure the help she needs. Not only for us, but for all of the children she has touched. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.
