Kickstarter Campaign to Grow Our Community April 06 2015

This month Marilyn Farms will be part of a Kickstarter campaign in an effort to expand our local dairy farms! We are working with a local organic dairy brand, Kalona Supernatural, and their community of small family dairy farmers to create a way to increase the supply of organic milk. Demand for organic dairy products has increased significantly over the years as consumers have become more health-conscious, and for this reason organic milk is currently in short supply nation-wide. This campaign will benefit our local businesses and farmers and help grow the organic farming community, fulfilling one of the primary goals of Marilyn Farms. We are proud to be a part of increasing the supply of healthy and delicious products, and we are very excited to participate in this local collaboration.
