Tracy's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped us set up for production at our new location and expand our farm.

Tracy's story

Margaret De Bona and Tracy Potter-Fins met in Tivoli, NY, weeding and harvesting for hours and hours together at Hearty Roots Farm. Margaret grew up in the mountains of Western North Carolina and has worked on various farms in Connecticut, Oregon, and New York state. She is a seamstress, artist, hiker, and master naturalist. Tracy grew up in Moscow, Idaho and farmed for three summers in NY state after traveling abroad and working on small organic farms in Europe. She is a baker, sheep shearer, spreadsheet enthusiast, and country two-step fanatic. We’ve been farming here in Montana since 2011, successfully growing and expanding our business each year. After 6 wonderful years leasing land in Dixon, MT we bought our own 10 acres in Huson and moved in the fall of 2016. We are so excited to establish our permanent presence in Western Montana as an accessible, high quality, organic farm.
