Support Your Farmer Year-round: Slow Money

Ducklings-01
Ducklings

In addition to offering CSA – Futures programs for our regular customers, Greens Eggs and Ham relies on “Slow Money” investors to support the long-term growth and sustainability of our farm.

In 2012-14, Slow Money investments were used to:

  • Produce meat ducks as demand requires
  • Invest in a larger flock of egg laying ducks. They take 8 months to grow before producing eggs.  To increase the flock size, we need to plan a 2nd flock for 6 months later of the same number.
  • Provide greenhouse supplies for winter production
  • Heat and light the greenhouse
  • Secure reliable labour
  • Repair and maintain infrastructure

Our farm has grown tremendously.  We face challenges meeting demand for our unique products, such as meat ducks in the winter.  We have 1 barn with a 9 week turn around, but our flocks are sold in about 3 weeks! Stay tuned for updates as we need to get creative to purchase a 2nd property to enable us to take advantage of opportunities.

Are you an investor? Would you like your investments to support your Farmer? Do you believe in sustainable farming practices? Find out more at our Slow Money page.
