Save the Farm Stand

$7,303 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 61 people in 21 days
Created April 30, 2019
Our beloved Farm Stand needs your help! On March 17th, a faulty heater in the building ignited a nearby piece of wood and started a fire. Luckily the Jackson Hole Fire Department was quick to respond and put out the flames, but the building and supporting equipment sustained serious damage and must be rebuilt/replaced.   

We need your help! Help us continue the 20-year Farm Stand legacy of fresh, delicious, and local produce in our community. Our goal is to raise $10,000 through our gofundme campaign by May 31st. We hope to rebuild and improve the Farm Stand in time to open on July 4th.

The Slow Food Farm Stand is one of many programs at Slow Food in the Tetons. The farm stand sells fresh seasonal produce and packaged food on behalf of small-medium local and regional producers that adhere to good, clean and fair growing practices. We also work with a small distributor in Utah to source fruits and vegetables that are not available in Teton Valley.

Slow Food in the Tetons  is a local chapter of an international organization. Our vision is a Jackson Hole community where local, healthy food is accessible and available to all. Our mission is to grow our local and regional sustainable food economy by supporting producers, educating consumers, and connecting them together in the spirit of good, clean and fair food.

Demo is complete! The extensive smoke and fire damage required that we remove all paneling, insulation, one of the walls, and parts of the roof. Thanks to the hard work of Nicholas Toye, head builder at Teton Habitat.

Now that it’s torn apart we can start to rebuild and replace most of what was inside the structure: refrigerators, table, chairs, coolers, office supplies, crates, etc.

We are humbled by the outpouring of support for our little farm stand -- Only $2,900 to go to meet our goal. Help us spread the word about the campaign!

Only two days in and we're over half way to our goal! We're enormously grateful to all those who have donated.

Steps toward rebuilding are already underway. A big thank you to the architects and designers at Vera Iconica Architecture for donating time to help us with a rebuild design. We hope to complete the Farm Stand rebuild before we open for the summer season -- tell a friend about the campaign to help us reach our goal!

Our first step toward rebuilding was to remove all the burned and smoke-damaged items stored inside the structure. Thanks to our staff and board members for grabbing some gloves and helping out.
