Grow With Us

THE FUTURE OF LAND'S SAKE FARM

A two-phase Capital Campaign focused on increasing efficiency, reducing reliance on neighbors, and creating a more sustainable farming model with the goal of better serving the community. 

With the addition of permanent structures and utilities, the Grow with Us campaign will allow us to expand our growing season and education programs, increase our food production, give more produce to those in need, and better serve our community. This 40 acre masterplan focuses on increasing efficiency, reducing reliance on neighbors, and creating a more sustainable farming model with the goal of better serving the community.


 

- A phased approach allows us to expand our growing season immediately -

PHASE ONE: FARM FRESH OFFERINGS EVERY SEASON

100,000+
hunger relief meals

In 2019, our high-quality produce served 80,000 meals donated to families in need. With proper storage and infrastructure, we estimate we can increase our donations by 30 percent.

Timber Frame Barn  to initially serve a temporary farmstand, then transition to a year -round animal barn and education center once our new farmstand, which is part of phase two, is completed.

Greenhouse to provide year-round vegetable production. Previously all of our greenhouses were located off-site.

Hoop House will aid in the year-round vegetable production and provide additional space for growing.

Utilities including water, power, and telecom. We have relied on our adjacent neighbors for electricity and barn space for coolers and summer program animals. Our current water connection is only available above-ground, limiting cold weather use.


 

PHASE TWO: FARMSTAND

grow with us

Our existing farmstand was built as a temporary structure nearly 40 years ago. This seasonal shed has no power or indoor space. The stand must be set up and taken apart each day, a three-hour process. On bad weather days there is no shelter for visitors.

Farmstand Demonstration Kitchen and a multi-purpose space to allow for community cooking, fresh from the farm meals and education programs and workshops.

Solar Panels on the roof for generating electricity.

Storage to include refrigeration, a root cellar and an on-site wash station for proper food handling.

Enhanced Public Seating - inside and out - along with a coffee bar for patrons to enjoy.

Artisanal products for purchase.

Permanent Restrooms available for staff and customers.

Special thanks to Payette, 2019 AIA Architecture Firm Award Recipient, for their pro bono architectural services.


 

MAKING PROGRESS

Support from our donors and volunteers is critical for reaching our goals

Thanks to our volunteers and our generous donors, the timber frame barn was constructed on site March 11th - 16th. Using traditional craftsmanship, the prepared posts, beams, and braces–made up of 60% donated Weston lumber–will first serve as our temporary farmstand and then become our new animal barn and education center.
