2022 Fall Annual Appeal!

Dear Friends of Crossroads Farm,

Fall is here at the farm.  It has come in with much welcomed cooler weather after the long, hot summer.  Although working in the heat was difficult, the crops have grown with vigor this year and with great abundance.  Much of the farm crew and staff have been with the farm for three years or more so our expertise has grown too. It is evident in how beautiful the farm looks and how wonderfully it is producing.

This however, is what’s visible but there is much more. The volunteers come regularly and add cheer and fresh energy. The many children and college students who fill our days with learning and laughter are ever growing in numbers and, most essential, those who support us with monetary contributions are the keystone in the arch.

The support from donors like you is necessary – not just for receiving the needed funds to keep our operations going for this fall and winter, but for the unseen support with the intent for strong growth, healthy food and learning. As a small organic farm and award-winning farm- stand we have become the cornerstone of our extended community serving hundreds of customers every week, providing organic produce and locally sourced products.

As a much-sought education source, we reach a widely diverse audience ranging from nursery schools to college-age programs. This includes students with intellectual and physical disabilities, ESL students, partnerships in education to avoid the criminal justice system and children of veterans. We are touching so many lives, yet without the farm being fully funded we cannot continue with our operations or offer our rich, experiential learning programs.

Please give this Fall. Our goal is to raise $45,000 with this outreach. With $15,000 already raised, we hope we can count on each and every one of you.  Every dollar helps, no matter how small or large it is a sign of your support of Crossroads Farm.

Best wishes for the autumn season.
