Save the Honey Bees via Kickstarter!

The Yummy Tummy Farms LLC Kickstarter 2015 project is up and running! Yummy Tummy Farms LLC is passionate about helping honey bees thrive in our urban / suburban environment. We do significant outreach through every medium and opportunity; for example, various Farmers Markets, Holiday Fairs, Facebook, our website and our blog. One of the many subjects that we engage visitors to our table and or booth is about the possibility of hosting honey bee hives in their backyards. The main reason we ask people if they can host honey bee hives is that we get significant calls in the spring and summer months to come and rescue homeless honey bee colonies. Honey bees become homeless as a normal genetic drive to procreate as demonstrated through swarming behavior. The result of swarming behavior frequently is that honey bees take up temporary residence in people’s homes and businesses. Home and business owners are naturally concerned for their family’s and or customer’s respective safety. The best case scenario is that we can calm and reassure them allowing time to go and retrieve the honey bees and put them in a proper hive. Sometimes it is difficult to calm people due to irrational fears around being attacked or stung and the call turns into a race against an exterminator.

In order to save the most honey bees possible, we need to have hives pre-built and homes ready to receive the honey bees. One obstacle we face, due to funding issues, is that we have had to decline to help because of lack of funds to buy hive supplies. Another obstacle we face is the inability to timely extract honey to give us enough inventory to sell with which we could reinvest in equipment and hive supplies. Yummy Tummy Farms LLC does not own its own honey extracting machine and relies on borrowing an old manual extractor that requires significant time and energy resources to utilize.

I, Farmer Donald, am coming to you asking for your help to successfully fund this project. The project goal is to raise $2,500 for several needs some of which I named above. I hope you find my request compelling and take personal action by navigating to our Kickstarter campaign page and fund our project.

Respectfully,

Farmer Donald

Kickstarter Update: Stuck At 45%

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/316147735/motorized-honey-extractor-and-voltage-converter

The Yummy Tummy Farms Kickstarter project proposal to upgrade our manual honey extracting equipment from a manual machine to a motorized extractor is stuck at 45% pledged funding level. Help!

I, Farmer Donald, am coming to you asking for your help to successfully fund this project in the final twelve days. In the beginning, when I posted this project, the interest and pledged funding increased dramatically from zero to 45% and then stalled. Please pledge at whatever level you can afford AND please kindly copy and paste the link above and urge your social networks to pledge support to a local suburban farm and honey bees. If you can support the project at the right levels, you’ll get some really sweet farm-related gifts and prizes.

Local supporters will highly likely receive invitations to seasonal farm dinners and become part of our product development test kitchen wherein you will get to sample our new products and give us feedback before anyone else! We have some incredibly yummy stuff in development too!

Lastly, we have been extremely busy promoting suburban farms, locally-grown food, and in so doing supporting the fight against childhood obesity. We recently partnered with CALPIRG (California Public Interest Research Group) to support the release of the their report Apples to Obesity. Yummy Tummy Farms was on the news! Check us out:
