Back in December, we posted about a crowdfunding effort to help Native Offerings Farm get back on its feet. A tragic fire had decimated most of their farm, crops, and machinery. But owners Stew and Deb Ritchie were not out of the game, thanks to the incredible support from a community that had come to rely upon their unparalleled offerings.
Now the community is stepping up once again, to raise additional funds for the farmers who have become synonymous with the farm-to-table movement here in Buffalo. After all, life without Native Offerings would not be the same – just think about the fresh produce, the CSAs, the restaurants that rely on their goods.
On Sunday, March 31, supporters will come together for a benefit, which will be held at Lakewood Spirits Event Center at The Barrel Factory in the Old First Ward.
- Support organic farming
