Support the Last Black Farmer in Rural Oklahoma

Why? Covid-19 of 2020 caused my siblings to become deathly ill and some hospitalized for a significant length of time; thereby causing our family farm Circle “R” to horrifically suffer of non -operation.  Also in our area the Cattle Stock yards and Meat Processing Centers were closed not allowing us to sell our livestock to maintain the farm. Therefore we had no resources to hire farm help to assist with maintaining the farm while my brothers were ill with Corona Virus.  Additionally, monetary resources were loss from our crops production of not being able to be sold to local stores. To date, stores were not accepting locally grown crops not certified through USDA standards due Covid-19. Literally no resources are flowing our way to sustain his farm operation.

Our goal is to raise $500k to retain the ownership and operation of our inherited family farm. Mr. Roberts is a 3rd Generation Farmer that operates and maintains the original 40 acres of land provided by the Land Allotment Act of Emancipation Proclamation.    

Mr. Roberts is trying to sustain his generational handed down land while simultaneously assisting his community to live healthier lives. This is done by providing his community with locally grown raised and harvested foods.  This the best and cheapest way to go, since they are not factory farms that rely on artificial growth hormones and unnatural living conditions for the animals in order to maximize profits.  As a local farmer he’s able to provide direct information when asked about his livestock, what they are fed, and their prices in order to determine what will best fit your family’s needs and budget.48933938_159302277561629_r.jpeg48933938_1593022205973071_r.jpeg
