OUR LITTLE HOMESTEAD

Grand opening in March, 2018

 

Vision

Set up small homesteads under the umbrella of Our Little Homestead, in order to provide as many nutritional crops and food products as possible for the communities we serve.

Mission

Affordable nutrition.

Concept

Our Little Homestead will manage market gardens on small properties and also team with local growers for products not available on any of the managed homesteads.

Homestead plans will be made available under open source through subscriptions, enabling others to duplicate the processes, and/or modifying the plans according to their own needs.

Problems that need to be solved

Nutritional foods are expensive.

The cheapest foods on the market are processed foods while organic foods are beyond the reach of many people.  Our solution is make our products comparable in price with a typical household grocery budget.

CSA subscriptions contain too much produce.

Getting a box of produce once per week can be overwhelming to many and the produce can spoil before it can be used up.  Our solution is to allow subscribers to purchase credits then spend their credits when they need produce.  Our weekly fee of $25 can be divided throughout the week, or spent all at once.

CSA boxes contain foods that not everyone likes.

The truth is, there are people who hate broccoli or peas or some other produce, and having the items in their CSA box can result in wasted food.  Our solution is to let subscribers select the items they want to put in their subscription.  They will only be shopping for products they know they will use instead of receiving items that will go to waste.

Organic foods are expensive.

Before organic became a buzzword, millions of families grew their own produce with no buzzwords attached to it.  It was just fresh food straight from their gardens and no one needed to classify if it was certified or not.  The urgency for people to have affordable nutrition out weighs the expenses involved in obtaining certification.

Our growing practices are transparent and tours are available.  Our solution is to grow everything naturally; the way it used to be.  We will pass on the savings to those who buy our naturally grown produce.

You’re welcome.

Niche

Affordable nutrition and open source gardening system.

Market Fit

Local customers can pick up their produce while it is still growing.  Our system allows them to walk into our market centers and select many vegetables right from their growing pots!  Now that’s fresh!

Online information subscribers will be able to follow our business and market garden concept and duplicate it in their own communities.
