GoldMar Enterprises is committed to natural (green) practices in vegetable farming. We use no pesticides or herbicides and believe in recycling, reusing and renewing. In the not-too-distant future we hope to be able to add wind power to sustain the farm's need for power (lights in barn, pumps, etc.)
Our farm will not only provide the community with the opportunity to share in the food growing process through a CSA, but will also provide the suburban community with plots of land with which they can plant their own vegetable gardens if they choose not to participate in CSA activities.
Finally, GoldMar Enterprises will provide instruction to members and non-members on the proper handling, preparation and storage of their farm-grown produce.
GoldMar Enterprises owes a debt of gratitude to many people for helping make our dream come true. Special thanks go to:
Jennifer Dieter and Jim Lewis -- without the land, there would be no farm. Thanks for making so many concessions and making the acquisition of the land so accommodating. Your generosity knows no limits and there will never be words enough to thank you.
Ruth Ann Dunlap -- she knows why we love her so much (besides the fact she's Lisa's Mom).
Jeff Werner -- Jeff's generosity knows no bounds. He is truly one of the best mentors we have found and is always, ALWAYS willing to share his knowledge. He is truly one-of-a-kind.
Jean and Tom Smith -- Just the best friends a person (or people) can have.
Bob and Wanda Burke -- Pat's aunt and uncle who have spent countless hours on the farm helping us build, clean, plant, fix, etc.
Dick Pettite -- an excellent teacher and mentor
Marta Maletzke -- donation of the hand tool mother lode!
Craig Youngs -- not only just a good salesman, but a fine example of what being a neighbor is all about
Lori Hahn -- a good friend, a great and generous human being
Lisa Armstrong -- another good friend, always willing to help with a smile
