About Our 2018 Promo Campaign

Welcome to 2018 and another year of the Genuine Faux Farm Community Supported Agriculture Program!

<insert clip of hundreds of fans cheering and clamoring for fresh produce>

Our theme for 2018 is "Paths to Produce" and we hope you will join us as we travel down the various pathways, both familiar and unexpected, that this growing season will bring to us.  If you use Facebook, you will find the hashtag #PathstoProduce2018 will bring up many of our posts on the subject.

The inspiration for this year's theme would be the photo shown at the right.  The pathway in the snow was created by our Farm Managers (the outdoor cats) as they find their way to different locations on our farm.  In the background, you will see the area that is to become our new washing station/packing area in 2018.

Tammy and I have been growing produce on this farm since 2004 and we officially started the Genuine Faux Farm in 2005.  We know that each season will bring its trials and its rewards and it is our job to negotiate these pathways to bring you delicious and fresh produce, eggs and poultry.  We have the experience to find our way with a good chance for success, but we still need one more thing if we are going to make this growing season a good one for the farm.

We need you.
We would like you to join us by participating in our farm shares.  If you want to see what options are available and the pricing of those options, we recommend you go to this page on our blog.  If you are interested in what you see, please send us an email and we will work with you to make your membership a reality.

About the Stamp:
The stamp that we have modified was created for United States postage in 1975 as part of the Bicentennial celebration.  At the time, the postage rate was 8 cents.

The stamp features Sybil Ludington on her ride to warn U.S. militia in the area about an impending attack by the British on Danbury, Connecticut.  Her ride covered about 40 miles on the night of April 26, 1777 and could be compared to similar rides that are known to have occurred that were taken by William Dawes, Jack Jouett and Paul Revere.  Sybil was sixteen years old at the time of her ride.
