MULBERRY CREEK'S CAMPAIGN OF HOPE
Farmers are thick skinned & wrinkled, not only from working out in the the elements but as a result of attempting to make a living, largely based upon the weather.
Attempting is the key word. Starting the fall of 2017, freezing indoor temps, fire, and roof ripping windstorms had us calling our insurance agent, followed by the coldest April on record and rain during the herb fair. These, out-of-our-control, freakily constant hurdles, only added to some health issues that Mark has been trying to tackle for the last couple years, but the worst was yet to come.
Every farmer deals with weather and other set backs, but our road, blocked from December 2017 to July 2018, almost always within a 1/2 mile of the farm, was the final and most lethal blow.
Luckily, farmers are forever hope-filled and positive that "next year will be better." Mulberry Creek, Mark & I will overcome.
The income needed to invest in next year's pots, plants, labor, utilities, insurance (over $70,000)..... was never realized. We are in the process of making drastic changes in our production, cash flow and priorities to survive but, (this is the hardest sentence I've ever "penned" to paper), we need your help.
If you have ever enjoyed a complimentary class, free herbs from the fair, an earful of advice from our staff, a LIVE Facebook video, or "sunshine" in the winter as you opened our free catalog, please consider investing in this herb farm.
