Elisabeth's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped us to finish building the pump for the well plus the electrical needed so we can continue to grow our flower and vegetable business.
Farming really is our passion. Farming is how I am able to be a small business owner in our community. It's how I am able to steward the land we call our own. Finally owning our own land is a culmination of a collective 10 years between my husband Steven and I working towards this goal. Stevens background is originally in cooking and that passion for great food led him to farming in search of great ingredients. That time in kitchens gave him a drive and work ethic that matches the intensity of farming, but also a great interest in growing and eating vegetables that taste great. My family has a farming history, but also a history of leaving the farm for better opportunities. Seeing the struggle that was and is dairy farming formed how I viewed agriculture, as hard and possibly heart breaking. As an adult I finally had the opportunity to learn and work on farms that paired my ideals of being a good steward of the land but also commitment to quality of life for the farmers. Steadfast Acres really is our big dream and we are happy to work hard, learn, and push to make our dream come to life.
