We are incredibly excited (although a bit saddened) to announce that we will soon be moving to a new location!
Fable is a farm, market, and education site that we founded in 2015 to bring healthy food and educational opportunities to the community. You can visit our website here:
Our farm is currently located on 17 acres of land in Yorktown. With a recent lack of land security and affordability, combined with the growing needs of a small business such as hot water and an insulated market, this had led our once prosperous and profitable farm to start to decline. Given this recent hardship and the growing support and demand from the community, we will be relocating as close as possible to our current site.
If there is one thing we have learned since the the pandemic, it is to take a crisis and turn it into an opportunity. We went from losing thousands of dollars in restaurant accounts and worried about keeping the lights on, to tripling the traffic to our market by offering contactless curbside pickup. We will not let a lack of land security and affordability shut down this farm, education site, and food hub that has done so many amazing things for our community.
We have two amazing options in front of us and we will be announcing our decision very soon. Both are within only 10 minutes of our current site. There are many critical and important decisions ahead so please be patient with us.
We will begin transitioning toward the end of October. As you can imagine, moving a farm with greenhouses, mobile coops, and a market full of appliances, will be no easy feat. But with your help, we know we can do it.
Funds raised will be used to pay for the relocation, permits and reconstruction of our greenhouses, moving all equipment and assets, pay existing suppliers and vendors, parking lot installation, an expanded cold storage room, an expanded and redesigned market, an outdoor seating area, driveway light posts, educational farm trail signage, and more.
It's time to dream big! Let's create a modern day farm and food hub with no restrictions on livestock, more flexibility, more cooking and educational classes, and increased community events, with all the profit being invested back into the farm, the land, and the community who helps build it.
We thank you so much for your support!
