Farmer Reuben in the News Again - Will You Donate Today?

Published about 2 months ago • 1 min read

Hi Reader!

The young, aspiring reporter met Reuben and Bill at a boring township meeting.

Now Olivia Marble is following this lead wherever it takes her.

After the zoning meeting in Upper Macungie Township, a young lady with a microphone attached to her iphone stopped Farmer Reuben and Bill Kuklinski, the owner of the building at 8150 Hamilton Boulevard.

After that interview she looked up our farm and found out about our Foster A Chick program. She came out to the farm to see the families picking up their chicks and met a couple teachers who incorporate chicks into their classrooms.

Miss Marble is back at it, bringing you news from Willow Haven Farm and spreading the word about Farmer Reuben's aspiration to bring a real farm store with organic and pastured foods to the area.

Read the Olivia Marble's article about rallying the community to help open Willow Haven General Store.

Share this story with your friends and neighbors:

Farmer Reuben wants you to know that he is encouraged by the excitement for Willow Haven General Store.

We support your desire to have a good, healthy way of life and food on your table that supports that goal.

We'll keep farming for you!

Growing up on my family's farm in Pennsylvania, I never would have pictured the life I live at Willow Haven farm. As a kid I spent summers in our large family garden we called, “The Truck Patch”. I helped mom every summer, picking beans, weeding, and cutting fruit and vegetables for the hundreds of jars of canned and frozen produce we put up. Now I spends less time out in the field and more time in the kitchen doing the same preserving for my own farm family. Farmer Reuben values my many hours doing much of the behind the scenes marketing, writing emails to cultivate customers and capturing the farm story each week. I'm always learning along the way in my quest to improve the farm experience for each of her current and future farm members in our 500+ member, year-round customized farm box delivery program. Reading our stories will connect you with your food in a way you never experienced before. Someday soon you will want to fit local food into your life and we'll be here to help you.

Hi Reader, Imagine you are 6 years old. What's the first thing you want to do when you get out of bed in the morning? Keep thinking. At 7 am I emerged from my room to a silent house. This is not normal. I called my kid's names. No response. I checked all the rooms and all the beds. No one. Were they outside in the yard? The swings hung still and the slide was empty.

Hi Reader, When I found out that Vince drove almost to Ohio to an organic farm and flour mill, I can't say I was shocked. He does that kind of thing. (Ok. I know Ohio isn't 9 hours away but he had to drive back too, right?) Asking "WHY?" was the next obvious action. The story continues... We Are Open!
