  • Funding Usage

    I am a convicted felon, I was released in May of 2018. Finding jobs is very difficult due to my background, my wife and two small children suffer due to this, as well as I do. I have recently enrolled in college online for my bachelors of science degree for engineering management technology. My wife is a stay at home mother due to our son having autism. We desperately want to put a down payment on a small farm (regardless of location) in Virginia. Not big livestock, we want to do crops and possible hogs and chickens. We are not afraid of hard work, and have a drive to be productive community driven citizens. My wife loves to use her culinary skills, to help volunteer with our daughters school events. She hopes that she will be able to turn that into a larger scale event. We would like to support local farmers markets, food banks, soup kitchens, school field trips, events, etc. We are not asking for a handout, or anything just solely for benefit of ourselves. We are asking for a chance to be productive and better whatever community we end up “planting roots” in. My wife has a background of 11+ years general management experience, and I like to think this proposal has been well thought out and planned by both of us. We can almost guarantee immediate revenue, and community charity. We just want a modest, hardworking, and honest lifestyle. With many outward opportunities of starting our small businesses, and being well respected entrepreneurs.

  • Business Plan

    In 5 years, we see 10+ farm hands. Diversity and consistency of product on a larger scale with supply and demand. Livestock expansion of hogs, and chickens...hopefully weekly/bi-weekly vender supply to local small business butchers, and restaurants. Consistent growth with farmers markets. Canning and preserving vegetables, jams, dried fruit, and pickled items depending on supply and demand. Donating to food banks, and soup kitchens, etc. on a consistent basis. Incorporating my college degree to my “then” farm to maximize productivity and diversity with every square foot of acreage we have. My wife and I feel, that investing in us, is not a “chance” it’s an “opportunity.” This is not just to benefit our family, it is to benefit any striving small town community. We are fully motivated to do the hard work, and are eager to help support local businesses and community efforts. The revenue is there, and the potential is very visible. But we are not looking to get rich, we are looking to not struggle so hard, and have not just a farm to pass down to our children, but a lifestyle and business they flourish in, because they grew up doing it.

  • Self Identified Competition

    We are not looking to compete, unless absolutely necessary. We are looking to make a difference, wherever we end up “planting roots.” Expansion and growth will come rapidly. My wife has 11+ years general management experience and our bussiness know how, is very well in tune. What makes us different, is that we are looking at wide spectrum overall but staying humble. Once again we are not looking to benefit solely, this is a good investment for all parties. This is a community investment, one that will grow and expand in every aspect, along with strengthening the community as a whole.
