Save The Farm?!

Hello from Sprout Creek Farm!  We hope that you are enjoying the Fall. Here in the Northeast, we are surrounded by gorgeous colors and are safe from the ferocious storms that Fall has brought to so many. We pray for all of you who have been impacted by the hurricanes, and ask that you let us know how you are, and how you and your loved ones can be helped as part of the Sprout Creek Farm family.

As always, we enjoy seeing, meeting and educating all who come to the farm. Without you, our charitable mission of educating young lives is lost.  Autumn at the farm brings preparation for the winter. The Frost Moon is near. This year, our preparation includes a sincere call to action. We have found ourselves with a serious financial shortfall, and are asking for your help and generosity to bridge this operational gap.

As a not-for-profit, we rely on donations for general support, but also to get us through these rough times. We are implementing a plan to correct the issues and build a more sustainable future for the farm. We are optimistic and energized by our planning. Our cheese sales are rebounding, and our program and events calendar is filling up for next year. We are doing all that we can operationally to ensure the future of Sprout Creek Farm, but we need your help.

Please help us save the decades-long legacy of Sprout Creek Farm and consider a donation or a pledge today. If ever there was a time to teach children about our Earth and our responsibility for its health and integrity, this is the moment.

Thank you for all of your support through the years. Let’s look forward together to a strong and sustainable Sprout Creek Farm. We look forward to serving you in the future.
Sincerely,
The Sprout Creek Farm Team
