Helder~Herdwyck Farm could really use some help right now. We are running a Gofundme Campaign to raise funds to help us replace our Farm Transport and Delivery Vehicle. Our current one, pictured below, is a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan that we purchased used. It now has over 122,000 miles on it, and counting. Please go to our campaign to learn more about what we do and why we so badly need a replacement to keep us going. We are not looking to get a vehicle for free, but to merely keep our current payment what it is moving forward. We use this vehicle for nearly everything for the farm and our fiber business. Thank you for checking it out, and please, share our campaign. It won't take many to help us reach our goal.
