An Idea, a opportunity, A Way to Pay it Forward, Micro Farms
Our Core Philosophy and Culture will be a Pay It Forward Approach. Meaning we plan to partner with other Businesses to help provide them a way to market themselves via Video and Events to help Promote, Expand, Educate via Social Media.
We plan to work with and support these Partnerships by sharing the risk, If they Succeed, we Succeed. So an opportunity arose through our site 4farm2mrkt to help out one the local Farms, Blue Lizard Farm, with an idea they had to keep the Water In Lincoln County. We created a video to help support their idea. This is the Video we created:
While up shooting the farm for footage for the Video we had a long Discussion about Micro Farms and how they could help Lincoln County. Rodney had just been working with Local, State and National Government Offices to incorporate a new program to help Micro Farms get reimbursed for up to $50000 a year for Hoop Houses. Once Blue Lizard Farm builds the Hoop Houses the Government will reimburse them for the cost of shipping and the cost of the Hoops houses so they can do it again Next Year. We thought this would be a great Idea for an Indiegogo campaign as they were out of collateral for funding these new hoop houses.
This fit in with our philosophy of Paying it Forward, We would help them by producing the Videos, running of the Social Media Campaign and this in turn gave us a reason to jump back into the business world.
We launched our Pre-launch Campaign to introduce the world to Micro Farms and Blue Lizard Farm.
We Launch the Campaign July 23rd 2015 at 9am

A short Preview.
Blue Lizard Farm has been operating for the Last few years in Caliente, in LIncoln County about 2 1/2 hours north of Las Vegas. They sell to Local Restaurants and come down to the Farmers Markets in Las Vegas. The Drive is long and because they need a re-fridgerated truck, the cost in travel basically eats up their profits. So by using this new Government Program they can increase capacity, every year to meet the demand for produce and reduce costs because they are bringing more Produce to Las Vegas. So not only are we helping Rodney, he gets more Hoop Houses, but he can pay it forward by helping new Micro Farms, Which gives us more Produce, Lincoln County More Jobs, everyone Benefits and Prospers. We want to create a community. With the new social Movement of participation, we can help Blue Lizard farm keeping growing and become a sustainable, viable Farm.
