Grow With Us

A TWO-PHASE CAPITAL CAMPAIGN

Land’s Sake Farm’s Grow With Us Campaign is a plan for the future. 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.

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

PHASE ONE: The Barn 

FARM FRESH OFFERINGS EVERY SEASON

A phased approach allows the farm to expand our growing season immediately.


 

Animal barn and improved grazing area will accommodate animals year-round and provide space for education programs during inclement weather.

Equipment barn, greenhouse, and hoop house will allow better care and storage of equipment and year-round vegetable production. Our greenhouses are currently located off-site.

Utilities Land’s Sake Farm has relied on our adjacent neighbors for electricity and barn space for coolers and summer program animals. Our water connection is only available above-ground, limiting cold weather use.

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.

PHASE TWO: The Farmstand

COMMUNITY AT OUR HEART

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.


The new farmstand will offer:

  • Demonstration kitchen and a multi-purpose space to allow for community cooking, fresh from the farm meals and education programs and workshops
  • A roof of solar panels generating electricity
  • Proper food handling and storage to include refrigeration, a root cellar and an on-site wash station
  • Enhanced public seating (inside and out) along with a coffee bar for patrons to enjoy
  • Artisanal products for purchase
  • Permanent restrooms

The $5 million Grow with Us capital campaign is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a lasting legacy of environmental stewardship at a precious community resource.
