Come Together: Lets build community

Here at Dare 2 Dream Farms, we have been pondering new ways to get involved in our community and support some of our local organizations. Because we are an organic produce growing farm, with an abundance of chicken eggs… we decided last fall to start a Farm Stand here at the farm! This gives our customers and members of the community an opportunity to come and visit the farm and pick out fresh produce, picked that morning!

We have decided to reach out to 12 local organizations this year, 2017, to support and donate proceeds from the farm stand. Every First Thursday of each month we will be donating to a different Lompoc club, non-profit, or community outreach program. Between November and January we donated to Planting a Seed, the LHS Girl’s Basketball Team, and the Boys & Girls Club. For the rest of the year we will be partnering with:

  • February: Planting a Seed Foundation
  • March: Lompoc YMCA
  • April: Lompoc High School’s FFA (Future Farmers of America)
  • May: Supportive Services for Veterans & their Families (SSVF)
  • August: Children’s Resource Network of the Central Coast
  • October: Lompoc Food Pantry
  • November: Lompoc 4-H Chapter

It is rewarding to be able to support some of these community organizations that are out there helping so many others in our community. Please feel free to join us on any given Thursday to support our local Farm Stand. Look for the sign at the end of the road with an arrow pointing our direction!

Lastly: If you know of any organizations that would greatly appreciate local fundraising, please urge them to reach out to us!
