Move Over Farmville!
Welcome a different kind of offering from SlowMoneyFarm! Over 63million people play Farmville, and we’ve long thought how much difference that interest could make if directed towards real farms. We’re offering a chance to do just that!
And as a bonus, for a limited time, a Move Over Farmville purchase has yet another benefit – funds from this will go towards sponsorship of food shares for those who need a hand up. There are millions of food insecure households, and this will help with not just food, but fresh food and food choices for those who need that hand up.
Our SlowMoneyFarm subscriptions offer a unique opportunity for all ages! You’ll get monthly email newsletters with pictures, information and updates on what’s happening with the animals at SlowMoneyFarm. You’ll get a 5×7 photo of a breed and species you choose to support. You’ll get a special gift during the year. And you’ll get all this and more for just $30. That goes much further than the Farmville game, and offers a real life opportunity to support and have a hand in the conservation of rare livestock.
This is a unique opportunity not only to learn where and how food is produced, but to learn about traditional and modern breeds of livestock, different types of farming and be involved in a real life farm.We’ll also have included fruit and nut trees, heirloom tomatoes and peppers and some other things from time to time.
From breeds listed with the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, you’ll perhaps choose to support Buckeye or Delaware chickens. Perhaps critically rare Ancona or Welsh Harlequin ducks catch your eye. Or perhaps you would like to focus on American breeds such as the Cayuga duck, Silver Fox or Giant Chinchilla rabbits.
We have a variety of animals that will be included and it’s a chance to take part in real farm development. Come along for the experience and learn something beyond the game! See real, living and breathing antiques that have existed for generations. Take part in the preservation of jackstock that traces to George Washington, or Tunis sheep that were once kept by John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, or Narragansett turkeys that date back to the 1600s. This makes history come alive!
