The Farmers who grow for GROW ALABAMA are real people, with families, hopes and dreams like many of us. They are deeply grateful for the opportunity to bring their crops to market in a much larger way than they would be able to by sitting in a farmer's market or some roadside stand. GROW ALABAMA enables these farmers to sell their crops in an efficient, cost effective manner.
Last week, one of our farmers, Matthew Pippen of Luverne, Alabama sent us a message regarding how he personally relies on the efforts of GROW ALABAMA to bring his crops to market. Here is his letter in unedited form:
"Thanks for the help today. One important question: I forgot to ask today. Before I invest in equipment, what are your plans for the coming years with Grow Alabama? We have started a good working relationship and want to continue to have one with you. Without your efforts I would have no market for my crops."
Our local farmers are committed to bringing you the best of what they grow - fresh, healthy and not lacking in flavor.
Please pass along this good news by forwarding to a friend. We all need to do our part, and support our local farmers. Together, we are bringing back sustainable agriculture to the State of Alabama. Thank you!
