Fat Wren Farm our small family jam and preserves business needs your help! Essentially we are in a pickle (get it) with the Covid-19 situation and things are getting very sticky.
Last year we purchased some machinery for our small preserves businesses through a finance company- that shall remain unnamed - and we were going ahead in leaps and bounds, life was great and we were working really hard to make a splash in the Aussie manufacturing scene. We had the team, we had the talent ......but then the world shut down! Corona virus lead to the cancellation of our major and minor events ! No markets, no Easter Show = no money coming into the farm.
We approached our finance lender who agreed to put our payment on hold for four weeks. But last week things got gnarly. The company wouldn’t hold payments and now wants us to sign a three year agreement to pay over $88,000 on a $50,000 machine! It’s extortion, or loan sharking if you prefer. We have scrimped and saved and put all our resources together but are $12,000 short to make the payout.
So here’s the idea! If you donate $30, we will send you $30 of our amazing products (via a code to use on the website), $50 gets you $50 worth, and $100 ....you get the idea! Code will be valid 12 months and will be emailed to you on receipt and request.

Much love in jamming together!
