Hello everybody, I am known as Miss Goat but it is only the name of my farm.
As you may understand, I herd goats and make cheese with their milk. I sale them on the markets or in shops owned by colleagues farmers.
My name is Angelique and I have been a farmer for 5 years. Ma farm is settled in Coussegrey, a small village about 200 kms south of Paris. I was not raised in a family of farmers, so I went back to school at 30 years old in order to learn my trade.
My flock is composed of 45 goats of different breed.
At the beginning, my farm was opened everyday to people but I started to close it 2 days a week. I like to welcome you and to share my passion but this year the farm will only be opened 2 days a week. I do not want the situation to be a problem to you so I would like to invest in a cheese vending machine !
Many times since I started, people came at the farm to get some cheese, but not at operational hours. I am pretty sure that some of them are annoyed by the situation. My work does not allow me to open all day. I have to feed the girls, milk them, herd them , make cheese, etc.
So this is the solution !
If you pass by the farm, for job or holidays, you can stop, choose and buy your cheese and bring it.
This is very simple, you need to insert coins and you bring my good cheese at home ! You do not have to wait till I finish to milk goats. You park and that's it !
Moreover this vending machine is another short food system. I do not want to sell my cheese to food store because I do not believe on these values.
What will serve as the fundraising?
For this plan, I need your support. Indeed, for now I cannot ask my bank another loan. To increase my sales and so my revenues, this cheese vending machine is one solution !
I have been looking for this kind of machine for 2 years. They are not easy to find. I found one at about 45 minutes far from farm. It is an opportunity.
This crowdfunding, your help, would help me to buy it.
For people abroad, we will find an arrangement for the compasations.
Thank you so much for your support ! See you soon !
