All The Best for 2016
December 31, 2015
All of Us at Crossroads farm wish you and yours the very best for 2016!
We are most grateful for all the support we have received this year from you and everyone in the farm community: volunteers, donors, contributors of goods and expertise, and our dedicated staff! And most of all thanks to you and all in our community who have helped make 2015 a succcess, whether through donations, store patronage, attending events, or participating in some other way.
2016 is upon us and so are the challenges we face every year. We also depend on financial support from our friends and supporters. Did you know it costs $6500 per year to feed our animals? Our electric bill is $1500 per month during the farming season. We need to pay for water, farm supplies, seeds, and maintenance. We receive no financial support from Nassau County or any other source of public funding. A farm is an expensive operation to support. We depend on your help -- and every little bit counts.
It's not too late to make a tax deductible donation in 2015. Donations of any size are warmly appreciated. For donations of $50 or more, we will send you a Crossroads t-shirt to show our appreciation. When you make your donation, also select a shirt in the size of your choice.
Another Way to Donate!

We have the will -- and of course, we have a pressing need to get this project underway! This building will be more than just a set of restrooms -- it will include a warming kitchen which means the events everyone enjoys at the farm will be greatly enhanced. Think of how this will enable us to handle on-site, professional food handling and preparation. Think of how visitors of all kinds -- school children, volunteers, hard-working farm staff -- will enjoy the facility year round.
This building is the foundation for our
