Saving Best Acres
We are a family-operated potato farm near Tryon, Prine Edward Island, Canada. Our family has farmed in the Tryon area since the 1800's and on this farm site since 1934. We are the last family farm still operating in the old Tryon School District. Due to a series of industry-wide crises and below-average crops, we have seen ever-mounting debts and now our creditors have refused funding for the current crop year and are planning to foreclose on our farm.
If we can reach our goal we will be able to satisfy our creditors, plant a crop, continue paying down our debt and carry on a farming tradition of over four generations.
All of the money raised will go directly toward our farm operation and paying down our debt. We are asking for a hand up, not a hand out.
By making a contribution, no matter how small, you will be taking a stand for family farms everywhere. There used to be dozens of family-owned potato farms near Tryon. We are the last one still standing.. the last alternative to factory farms.
Whether you are a friend, farmer, supplier or creditor here on PEI, or a total stranger a thousand or more miles away, we desperately need and appreciate any assistance you can give.
Besides contributing, you can also help just by sharing this video! Friends, business contacts, POLITCAL LEADERS. please involve anyone you can think of! The more folks who know about this problem.. the better.
