Our Kickstarter Campaign: We’ve just launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $3,000 to contribute to the purchase of a BCS 732 walk-behind tractor for our farm. Make a donation to our cause and receive rewards that include store credit to our All Good Things Organic Seeds web site and a yearlong Community Supported Agriculture share.
We initially chose to rely on hand tools to work the land because we are first generation farmers and didn’t want to go into debt to buy heavy machinery. However there is now too much space for the two of us to maintain with our bodies alone, and we’re looking for supporters to help us fund a BCS walk-behind tractor. The BCS tractor allows us to successfully incorporate cover crops into the soil (an important element of ecological farming), increase our annual vegetable and seed production, and save our lower backs. This will result in a higher quality product coming from our field, and a better quality of life for the farmers!
We’re reaching out through Kickstarter both because of our past success with this platform and because we believe that our community – both locally and outside our bioregion – wants small farmers to succeed. We believe in the power of farm-supported communities, and thank you for contributing to our endeavor!
