Donor update

To all those who have pledged generously to Bear Canyon Farm:

First of all, we want to thank you for your support! We appreciate it so much. Second of all, we’d like to share an update.

On February 8th we made our proposal to the Growth Through Agriculture Grant Board. After a long two-week wait, we received a letter notifying us that Bear Canyon Farm had been denied the grant funding requested. There are a couple reasons for this: 1) the Growth Through Agriculture Grant board had five times more requests for funds than funding to disperse and; 2) Bear Canyon Farm was not in a priority category (this year the board focused on projects such as expanding businesses).

Although this was very disappointing news, we know God is leading in this project and will continue to provide as we move forward, according to His will and in His time. Again, thank you for your pledge and support as we applied for this grant.

The pledges were made on the condition that Bear Canyon Farm would receive the Growth Through Agriculture Grant. However, if you would still like to donate all or part of your pledge, we would certainly appreciate the support. If you choose to contribute, please make checks payable to “Bear Canyon Farm” and send your donation to: Bear Canyon Farm c/o Mount Ellis Academy, 3641 Bozeman Trail Rd, Bozeman, MT 59715.

Due to the snow, we haven’t yet been able to move to Bozeman. We hope to be able to break through the snow drifts starting mid-March and get settled! After March 31st, the Bear Canyon Farm mailing address will be: Bear Canyon Farm, 3271 Bozeman Trail Rd, Bozeman, MT  59715. Until then we will continue to use the Mount Ellis Academy address listed above.

Thank you again for your prayers and support!

Eric and Katie Harris  and
The Bear Canyon Farm Board
