Amy Johnston

Springhouse Farm

$3,000 – Produce Stand

Amy is building a permanent produce stand on her farm, where she has had great success with direct sales due to the heavy traffic on her road. A permanent produce stand, in place of tents and break-down tables, helps create a professional image for the farm.

Amy hosts several farm tours, a lucrative outlet for on-farm sales. She is also creating brochures and T-shirts with her logo, improving signage and creating a website. Amy incorporates ecologically sustainable farming methods into her system.
