Make A Monetary Donation

It costs $30,000 to run the Bittersweet-Milkweed Collaborative Farm for one year. That amount pays for labor, grain, seeds, equipment repairs and general daily expenses like electricity and gas.

Every bit you give helps us maintain our ecological, financial, physical and mental well-being, and allows us to continue sharing our knowledge, space and food with those around us.

We are grateful for donations in any amount.

How to donate:

  • Make an online donation of $10 or more through our website (below).

  • Reach us on Venmo @MilkweedTussockTubers.

  • Mail a check made out to "Bittersweet Farm" to 1249 State Hwy 184, Heuvelton, NY 13654.

  • Please note that donations are not tax-deductible at this time. We are working on it! Thank you for your support and patience.
