☀️ our farm needs your help ☀️
We work hard, we don’t take days off and we work long hours to bring you all the best possible produce we could ever imagine growing and now we need your help.
We have read about crowd funding, dabbled a little and dreamed a lot.
Now it's our turn - please help us make a difference!
Our farm now needs a cash injection to take it to the next level.
We have big plans for extending the flock and making it more affordable for you. We have a small commercial kitchen space under construction & all we need now is a boost from you.
If you’d like to take part then please email firstname.lastname@example.org or text 0400119312

This is our shopping list
$2,250 Essential transport crates and this will buy us about 30.
$5,500 This will pay for our application, soil testing and certification, leaving us with just a short transition period to achieve full certification.
$5,000 This will pay for our new brooder spaces for our baby chicks.
$6,000 To transport and store our chicken, from the processor to home, to the markets both near and far. Designed to meet both The Food Authorities + our growing families needs (yep cause George takes baby Eedee to every market).
This is what our "off farm heros" have funded so far:
$3,000 Packing machine so we can present our goods in vacuum bags and give a 10 day shelf life.
scales with branded label
$2,250 one of our main hurdles to get into the supermarket world is a decent set of scales with a branded sticker that tells both our and the products story.
$600 to make fresh mince every week that we can add spices from the garden and create sausages, burgers patties and other meal bases. It will also mince frames so we can offer fresh pet mince weekly.
$750 to make fresh sausages every week + start experimenting with cured small goods.
$8,000 This will pay for our new (read old and daggy) farm ute; auto, with 5 comfortable seats, 3t towing + some sort of safety rating. Capable of doing all things farming, marketing + home delivering.
$7,500 This is a game changer. Allowing us to travel far and wide with fresh chicken, safely and not freak out during peak hour traffic. (read- old'ish ford ute, runs on gas and has refrigerated cool box on the back! Poo green in colour... its perfect!)
new generation chicken houses
$5,000each These are our new generation chicken houses (no one in Australia is using this technique), designed for 300 chickens with daily moves onto fresh pasture. These will allow Brooklet Springs Farm to scale which will bring our pricing down. We need 5 chicken houses to make up the batch. (5 x $5,000 = $25,000). The first 2 x of these is already with the steelworkers! fic.
