Our Kickstarter Project!
This winter we will begin a project of building a community space and bringing solar power to the farm. Both improvements are critical to Cricket Creek’s sustainability and we are excited to get going.
The plan is to renovate our historic stone barn, converting the upper story to an event space for community use, and that we can rent several times a year for celebrations. This will further our goals of both working to support our community and provide a needed revenue stream to ensure the future of the farm.
Additionally, we will lower our carbon footprint by integrating solar power onto the farm. Dairy farming is generally fossil-fuel intensive, and we want to change that. By producing electricity and hot water with energy from the sun, we can be a better steward of our environment while reducing costs (electricity and oil is expensive!).
We will need everybody’s help to make this happen!
