AYA Purchases 3 Additional Acres

AYA would like to extend a huge thank you to our donors for helping us get three-quarters of the way to our goal of owning 20 acres!  At the end of December, the three acres adjoining AYA’s farm became available and AYA supporters heeded the call to purchase the land. This brings the total acres we own to 15. This land is valuable not only because of the additional food we can produce, but because it is attached to the current farm and helps us to work more efficiently and securely.

As we look forward to 2012, we hope to raise enough to buy another 5 acres (currently selling at about $5000 per acre). We also need to work on fencing the current property due to the high potential of theft and animals grazing on our crops.  Our project manager is currently working on an estimate. 

We would also like to welcome the newest AYA Farm supporters on Global Giving. We are truly excited and humbled that so many people have chosen to support us amid so many worthwhile projects.  If anyone ever has questions or would like more information about the farm or any of AYA’s projects, please don’t hesitate to contact me at  We truly can’t continue to impact children’s lives without you!
