Agriculture has been in the news a lot lately on the local and national scale. A 2008 proposition (2) is finally coming into law. It will abolish the close confinement of farm animals in cramped cages and crates. At Farm Lot 59 we didn't need a law to tell us how to treat our animals. We treat them with utmost love and respect. You will never find our animals in a cage or living in cramped conditions.
We treat our farm as a living organism and try our best to farm in harmony with nature. We appreciate you when you spend your food and donation dollars with us. It makes it possible for us to show this example of sustainable farming to Long Beach. Its a farm in the city where we live when land for agriculture is so scarce.
By supporting our farm we are able to teach sustainability and biodynamic growing methods to our community and do our best to promote the "grow your own" movement. In 2015 we hope to grow these efforts even more.
- Ensuring fresh local produce is produced in Long Beach
- Provide our visitors with the knowledge of where their food comes from and how to grow it responsibly
- Educate our youth on how to make healthy food choices
- Make our farm a space where community members can come and make meaningful relationships
Please use this opportunity to donate one last time to Long Beach Local. You can donate online here.
Thank you for your continued support.
