Crowd-sourcing has become an increasingly useful tool for entrepreneurs of all kinds. It’s also helping farmers with land access.
Vermont farmers Amanda Andrews and Mike Betit have been farming the fertile but flood-heavy land adjacent to the Winooksi River. After three seasons of devastating crop losses, they’ve decided to move to higher ground, but they don’t have quite enough capital to do it on their own.
They’re asking the help of those who value what small farms have to offer.
Crowd-sourcing asks many people to give minimal amounts (as low as one dollar), instead of asking a bank for the whole sum. Learn more and help out these Vermont farmers.
