Displaced by development, Blue Sky Organic Farms needs our help to get started on a new piece of land.
Pinnacle Prevention is raising these funds on behalf of Blue Sky Organic Farms. 100% of donations will go directly to Blue Sky.
Why We Love Blue Sky:
Blue Sky Organic Farms is a certified organic family farm located in Litchfield Park, AZ. They have been farming 120 varieties of vegetables in sunny Arizona since 1995.
You may know and love their:
- Their vibrant booths at Downtown Phoenix Farmers Market, Roadrunner Park Farmers Market, Old Town Scottsdale Farmers Market, Uptown Farmers Market, and Gilbert Farmers Market,
- 550-member Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program,
- On-farm storefront stocked with local and fresh products, and
- Longstanding relationships with many wholesale partners - including local restaurants, Arizona Food Bank Network/St. Mary’s Food Bank, and Sun Produce Cooperative delivering to 6 Arizona counties.
The Backstory: You may have heard the heartbreaking news that Blue Sky has been forced to relocate due to the sale of their land.
Nationally, farmland is lost to commercial and residential development at the rapid rate of 80 acres per hour. This threatens years of investments within a land-centered, hands-on industry. Loss of farmland will significantly alter our local landscapes and diminish our farmers’ food production abilities in the immediate future.
Fortunately, there’s good news. Blue Sky Organic Farms has partnered with a local rancher to lease 40 acres of land - but they need our help. They need to immediately invest $250,000 for an irrigation system, power infrastructure, and preparations for the upcoming planting season.
During an already challenging year, these unexpected expenses will deeply impact the farm’s ability to continue feeding thousands of local families. We need to help get them settled so they can keep growing delicious vegetables as soon as possible.
Blue Sky Organic Farms is a core source of high-quality local produce that nourishes Arizona’s hunger-relief programs. Owners David Vose and Sara Dolan are community-minded pillars of the local farming community in Arizona.
Thank you for pitching in as we work to preserve farmland for generations to come. Every penny of this fundraiser will go directly to David and Sara’s farm.
