Thank You for all the Support!

Dear Long Beach Locals-

We know your inbox is flooded with end of year donation requests. We also want to throw our name in that hat but more importantly say thanks.

Thank you for making 2013 an amazing year. We hosted 100's of kids on the farm for school field trips, Camp Fire kids, and workshops. We hope to extend these programs in 2014 and add Farm Camp to the roster. Every kid should learn basic food knowledge and have a farm experience.

Our Farmstand was open for 8 months for you to be able to purchase fresh, organic, specialty produce for your family. We also extended our Farmstand into a Marketplace supporting other local artesian businesses. Our 2014 hours are 2nd Saturday 10-1.

In 2014 we hope to have an addition of 100 fruit trees. Our growing climate is perfect for citrus, stone fruit and tropicals. If you are interested in funding our orchard I will send you the proposal.

This winter we are not resting at all. We are planning our Spring crops as well as building some much needed infrastructure. We can always use lumber and building supplies please contact us before coming by with your donations.

We have ambitions plans for 2014. Your support is the single factor that will make those plans a reality. Please donate to Long Beach Local today!

If you make a gift of support today, here's what we can accomplish in 2014.

  • Help us to replenish our seed bank for 2014
  • Pay off the balance owed on our tractor
  • Expand our educational program so we can have summer camp on the farm!
  • Plant 100 fruit trees
  • Hire a farmer, we are suppose to be creating jobs!
  • Get more chickens to fulfill the demand for our delicious eggs

At Farm Lot 59 we are dedicated to providing Long Beach with pesticide free, non-GMO, organically grown produce. By supporting the farm you are supporting a local business and keeping your tax deductible donations right here in the community. Become a member today for $25 or donate at any level. We appreciate the support.

See you on the farm.
