Help us buy this tractor!

Hello Long Beach Locals-

In May we were honored to be awarded a grant from the Women's Business Council to help us fund the purchase of a tractor. Unfortunately the grant money fell a little short of the purchase price. We need to match their grant by another $2,500 to be able to buy the little Kubota tractor that we need.

Currently we are doing everything by hand and as rewarding as that is its not very efficient. The purchase of a tractor would allow us to be able to accomplish a lot more in a lot less time. As we enter our second year farming at Farm Lot 59; we need to increase our on farm products and production rates. We grow a wide variety of organic, non-GMO vegetables; flower, fruit and honey but are currently only using 50% of our property. Having a piece of machinery on site would greatly help with these goals.

You can donate in person at the farm during our store hours, Friday 2-6 & Sat 10-2 or send in the mail to:

or through our paypal account.

Please help us raise $2,500 to purchase this cute little tractor.

All donations are tax deductible and much appreciated. Thank you for supporting local agriculture in Long Beach. See you on the farm!
