Dear Supporters, Friends and Family,
Please see my Updates on Go Fund Me to read the latest news...
Justin Novicky here, your tomato farmer from Novicky’s Farm. Emily and I are writing you today to ask for your help in any way you can. The farm and where our passion lies is for sale. We are committed to keep Novicky's Farm sprouting. You have the opportunity to help and we have the good fortune to make our dreams come true…by remaining the owners of this amazing business.
In 2015 a friend asked me to be the face of the farm, continuing a long Bend tradition of growing food. I have built relationships with the land and the community. We care about our Vegetable Business and want to remain the steward of it.
History of the Farm
Back in 2008, our visionary and mentor Victoria Roth, a Bend favorite, survived a long battle with Cancer. Gardening became a great way to relax and recover from her illness. Victoria’s Vegetables was born and the start of what we are fighting for began! She spent seven years educating the Bend community about growing food as well as building great relationships with the locals. She hosted countless seminars and tours on the farm. We want to continue Victoria's legacy.
Today at Novicky's Farm
It is our mission at Novicky’s Farm to provide fresh, nutritious, high quality produce to our local community. We are committed to forging partnerships with other farmers, restaurants and educators, working together to create a more sustainable future for our community.
We have a passion for growing beautiful things from our Mother Earth but our bigger passion was found meeting all of you through The Tomato. Hearing how much you all loved what we grew meant the world to us. Receiving positive feedback from Ariana Restaurant, Deschutes Brewery, Worthy Brewing, Sunriver Brewing, Locavore as well as the community at each Farmers Market’s over the summers kept our motivation strong. Through food we can build community, join us!
We are so proud of what we’ve done. It would hurt us most to see our community without the tomatoes they’ve enjoyed for almost a decade.
Future of Novicky's Farm
Emily and I are working very hard for the future of Novicky's Farm. Your donations will pay for us to erect two greenhouses on the property. Your donations will be heartfelt and monumental for the success of Novicky's Farm. If you have any great ideas, we are happy to hear them. If you would like to help, of course we welcome the conversation. Even if it's just your love and support you can give, we appreciate it. Thank you in advance for your help.
