FUNDRAISING FOR FARMS
Thank you for helping us to raise money for local and small farms!
In an effort to protect the health and wellbeing of our picklers and pickle lovers alike, the Boston Pickle Fair was sourly canceled this year. In its place, we decided to give pickle fanatics everywhere a chance to support a worthy cause, one that we felt could directly impact our pickle community.
During the first half of October we worked to raise money for local and national farmers that not only work to help keep our farms thriving, but also uplift young BIPOC and LGBTQ+ farmers. As a thank you for donations, we sent out some of our iconic Boston Pickle Fair swag from previous years.
MEET THE THREE ORGANIZATIONS DIRECTLY SUPPORTED THROUGH THIS CAMPAIGN:
New England Farmland Trust
The goal of the New England Farmland Trust is to fund farmers in two primary categories: professional services and infrastructure costs related to assuring agricultural land is in production.
One Acre Fund
The One Acre Fund supplies 1 million smallholder farmers with everything they need to grow more food and earn more money. Instead of giving handouts, OAF invests in farmers to generate a gain in farm income.
Soul Fire Farm
Soul Fire Farm is a BIPOC*- centered community farm committed to ending racism and injustice in the food system. They raise and distribute life-giving food as a means to end food apartheid.
