What an amazing few months it has been. Anderbell Acres has really taken off. Our strawberries are planted for next spring. Our pumpkin patch is ready for our first customers to roam and find their perfect pumpkin. Olivia's flowers are blooming, and have already been adorning various dining room tables and even a wedding! We were even able to purchase a tractor. We are already planning for next year, and figuring out what we need. This year we grew our seedlings in a make shift grow space in the house, and a 10x10 greenhouse I built. We need more space. We are going to be installing a 30x72 hoop house. Unfortunately these structures are not cheap. We were able to secure $8,500 towards the purchase of the hoop house, but still need almost $3,000 more. We are going to install it ourselves to save money. So, that is why we are doing this fundraiser. From a new irrigation system, compost, wood chips, and seeds, starting the farm has not been cheap.
Why do we need a hoop house? Two reasons:
- It will allow us to extend our growing season here in Vermont, especially for the cut flowers Olivia grows.
-It will give us more space to grow seedlings, saving us money not having to by actual plants.
Any amount you could contribute would be awesome, and would go to our vision to making a sustainable organic farm. Check out or Instagram page at Anderbell_Acres, or our website www.anderbellacres.com
