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.
Muddy Brook Farm Fire Relief
Early Sunday morning (November 3, 2019) our friends at Muddy Brook Farm in Amherst, MA experienced a devastating loss of three horses due to their barn catching on fire.
Every barn has years and years of memories, hard work, and friendships that would never have existed if it weren’t for the animals we love so much. Our horses work so hard for us without protest, are there for us to celebrate our victories, and comfort us in our losses. Without these animals as teachers, we wouldn’t be the hard-working and passionate people we are.

Support Bluebird Farm Animal Sanctuary
Bluebird Farm Animal Sanctuary and Wildlife Rehab located in the beautiful Berkshires is a small privately run sanctuary whose purpose is to rescue animals in crisis. We rescue farm animals from slaughter and abuse, domestic animals in crisis, as well as rescue and release orphaned and injured wildlife. All done without the benefit of provisions from the state, or grant money.
This fund raiser will help us create a new therapy program as well as provide enrichment and medication for the 100+ animals in our care. The animals and I thank you. Every dollar goes directly to the animals and nothing else.
