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.
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.
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.
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
