Hello, We’re Skyberry Farm!
We are a local organic farm located in the west hills of Portland, and we’re passionate about using food as a tool to help build community in the greater Portland area and beyond!
Since 2012, we’ve been running a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program and have been delivering vegetables people in the local community who have been a part of our program. This year, we’re changing our direction. We would like to create a sustainable system to grow fresh organic produce on our farm and give it away to local charitable organizations, for free.
We started a Kickstarter fundraiser on May 9th, and our goal is to raise $30,000 in one month. With this money we’ll be able to make the necessary foundational/ structural improvements to open our doors as a bed and breakfast and event space. The money we earn through these two ventures will fully fund our garden program, so we can donate our food to Portland based hunger relief organizations such as New Avenues For Youth, Sisters of the Road, and The Oregon Food Bank.
Since our Kickstarter Launch a little over a week ago, we’ve been able to raise a little over 6,000 dollars, or about 20% of our goal! While we are excited about our progress, we realize that we have a long way to go. We are writing this because we need you, the food community of Portland, to help make this project a reality.
If you are interested in fighting food insecurity in Portland and like what we are trying to do, share our project with friends and family, and donate if you are able!
