Hi Everyone,                                                                                                                                                  3 Febuary 2017

Sorry that it has been to long since our last update, we have had a turbulent time.

 After being told by the FSA that even though of us were honorable discharged for the military we are not veteran enough to qualify for veteran status. Even with all our degrees in business and agriculture it is wrong. We went through mediation and the mediator asked why they were so petty and rolled her eyes about a dozen times. At the mediation is when we found out about not being veteran enough and that yes with over 20 years experience we could grow tomatoes but we don’t know how to pick them. Yep you read that right.

 We started a letter writing campaign to find out the 95% did not even answer. Non-political organizations were sorry we can’t help, but would you like to donate to us. The politicians would only reiterate the FSA.

 So we are now on to the crowdfunding. This campaign is at barnraisers .com, our special link is http://bit.ly/2hb6aLL.  We are not giving up. This farm is the place we felt welcomed when entering it. It is 95% perfect for the type of farm we want. We have changed our plan a bit. Through all of our problems we have found many vets having the same problem. We want to help them with the education and experience part of the process. And yes you are not the only one asking about the funds set aside specifically for vets, not one vet we have talked to was able to qualify.

Hello Everyone,
         So glad you all came back. We are sorry about the length of time since our last post. We were getting tired of saying sorry no news. As we are sure you were getting tired of hearing it.
         We guess what, we have some news, but not much, but not much.
         We are looking for investors. We know how much we need, we just need to figure out how and who. If you are interested please let us know and we will send you a copy of our business plan and what ever else you request. We would also like to set up a time when we could speak to you. If you know of someone who may e interested tell them about us. 
         We are also researching Crowd Funding. So many sites, it take so much time to investigate them. Trying to find the right one is not as easy as it first seemed. Once we find one or three that we like we will post their sites here. 
         We are still waiting for a firm date for the luncheon that is in September. We are hopeful this will bring in a few interested restaurants as clients and or investors.
​           We talked to our first person as an investor. We did not into this meeting thinking we would walk away with our first investor. They did not seem interested in becoming one. But was a good practice giving our pitch to someone that has not seen our plan or anything. She asked question as an investor would. We were able to answer all her question but one. It was one had not even thought of, but giving it a little thought we answered it, which she liked. So all in all we believe this meeting was a god thing. 

Thank you for visiting

Hello Everyone,  
            Well not much has happened this week. Still waiting for the LLC paper work to go through. Looked into Google plus, not sure if we are going to do this. If you are interested in Google plus please let us know, we may change our mind. Want to do our blogs just not sure which site is best, any thoughts or opinions? Not gotten far with the slogan thing yet. We are still looking into the farm.

    Hello Everyone, Thank you for coming back.                                                           
            Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there.
            We had a busy week this week.
            We sent out our LLC papers. We are just waiting for them to be formalized.   
            We have a Twitter account now (@KusarFarms), a Face Book Page (facebook.com/KusarFarmsLLC) and a LinkedIn Page (Kusar Farms LLC).  We also have 2 emails: our first email (kusarfarm@gmail.com) will always work. and one through our website (info@kusarfarms.com). We are still looking into blogs and the best sites and Google plus, If you have any suggestions please let us know.

​​            We are having problems with our slogan. We are thinking of creating a competition to come up with one. Please stay tune as we are still working on the details.

            We think we found the farm. We are working out some of the details. I want to describe it. My superstition about losing it prevent s me doing so. We will let you know when everything is worked out.

            Hope everyone is having a great new year and that it continues to get better for everyone.
            We are so sorry for the very, very long time since our last posting. A few things have happened and not all are good.
            1) The fund raising luncheon has not happened, yet. Apparently, there was at least one more hoop to jump through that the sponsors did not do. So, it has been postponed to another date, which has yet to be announced.
            2) We needed to think about what our next step. We are still thinking on it. We are getting ready to start a crowd-funding site, we are still working on the details. If you have any suggestions, on sites or what to include in our campaign, please email us at kusarfarm@gmil.com.
            3) We have also had a few personal loses, and needed time to recover from them. 
 
            Here is list of places you can find us, there are a few new ones we have added:

Thank you for returning to our site.
     We have a day and time for our fund raising event, but no address. Please realize we are not organizing this event. We are not happy about how it is being done, but we were invited without any cost to us, so...........Hoping for the best.
     The event is tentatively set for 20 October 2013 from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm some were in Skokie Illinios Depending on how this goes on what our next move will be.
      We are still trying to narrow down the field for crowd funding sites. There are so many, trying to find something that fits us. Any and all suggestions would be appreciated.
     We are asking everyone that reads this to Please "share", "like", "comment", "re-tweet" etc. our website, blog, twitter, facebook, linkedin,etc. We need exposure and doing this will help put us out there to more people. We need MORE exposure. Thank you
