We are Grass Roots Farm. We raise 100% grass fed beef, pastured pork, chicken, turkey and eggs.  We travel to Boston to farmers markets to sell our products. We are building a commercial kitchen to make sandwiches and soups with our own roasted meats and an on farm chicken slaughtering facility.  You can visit our website at www.grassrootsfarm.net. Please consider helping us make this a success. Thank you so much for helping to support your local farm.

Good Morning,

We are enjoying a mild winter thus far and it has helped in extending our building time.
The Chicken processing building has the walls built and the trusses are going up today! It is an exciting time for us. We have spent years planning for this and now it is coming to fruition .

While our builder is taking care of the "big" stuff we can focus on getting insulation and heat into the commercial kitchen.

This has been a huge undertaking for us and everything is on the line for us. All of our tears, sweat and hard work lead to this point in time. With these two additions to the farm we have projected that once up and running we will finally be able to support ourselves. Which is GREAT news!!

You will benefit too!!
I will be able to have "pieces" of chicken to sell at the market and soups, sandwiches,and stock as well.
In the future, we have hopes to expand the commercial kitchen so we can provide frozen cooked meals.

On a more serious note...
We are putting all of our financing into making this happen.
We are trying to refinance our house, we have taking loans out and every penny we make goes right back into this project.

We need your help... We have a Go Fund Me page, please pray and ask God how you can help us.
If it means sharing our page to your friends, keeping us lifted up in your prayers or donating to our fund, ALL of it is so desperately needed!

We know we are doing what we are supposed to be doing and Faith and God's grace has brought us to this point. So we are continuing too trust in Him.

During this Christmas Season and the New Year we pray and are thankful for each one of you!
Blessings and Merry Christmas!

We are making progress on our project. We had to expand (double) the size of our septic and leach field. It has been quite the undertaking. Thanks to all the hard work of Tom and his incredible ablility to do everything!!
Also a shout out to my cousin Mike, helping out with the Plumbing. We can now move on to updating the electrical service and putting in the vent stack for the plumbing.
We are still a long way off from our goal, but we have faith that it will be reached with all of your help.
Please share this with all of your friends!! Thank You!!
Do not be discouraged, God is with you!

By the end of the month we will start building! We are so excited to be adding the commercial kitchen. We will be able to bring such a delicious addition to our markets. Yummy sandwiches and soups, made from our own meat. Made right here at our farm. Please help us raise enough money to hire help and also build the chicken slaughtering building. We have big plans and all we need is each and everyone of you to give what you can to help.
I found this quote today, it made me laugh, because that's what this farm is like. A giant itch that needs attention (in a good way) always there...a strong, persistent feeling of making a difference. So here it is:

“I’m building a building from scratch, and I’m making it out of a giant itch.”
― Jarod Kintz, 99 Cents For Some Nonsense

So, Please itch away with us :)
