SSF is more than proud to host
Collin County Economic Opportunities,
CCEO, 2016!

Or as I prefer to say, Double CEO 2016!

Join us and our Squeezepenny (SQP) CSA (Community
Supported Agriculture) Members for a true local
adventure! Farmer Penny, EAE (a self proclaimed
Econ-Agri-Ecopreneur) is asking for you all to dig just a
little deeper to learn what you might do to help each
other ensure the success of this economical
agricultural eco-friendly plan.

Currently proposed to the estimated
854,778 residents of Collin County, Texas.
With a specific challenge to the approx. 155,142 city
residents of  McKinney, TX.

Of course we will do our very best to offer to include  
any interested residents from any of our surrounding
rural communities, smaller towns
and larger urban sister cities.

In 2016 SQP CSA intends to begin sprouting new local
producers while working with existing ones to become a
regionally located Food Hub,

our future plans include:

Squeezepenny Local Food Hub.
Our SQP CSA Independent Co-Producers will offer
crops that are grown in, animals that are raised in
and/or products that are produced in the
following Texas Counties:

Collin, Dallas, Denton, Fannin,
Grayson, Hunt and Rockwall.

SQP CSA Program has a social approach to
responsibility with an
agrarian twist to fair
valued, fresh, safe and healthy food for our rural,
urban and new urban neighbors.

SQP CSA's bi-weekly plans
offer year round support
to our local area's
Farmers, Ranchers and Producers.

Reaching out to work with our current suppliers of Fresh,
Healthy, Local, Organic or Naturally Grown, Raised and/or
Produced Texas Agricultural products such as: vegetables,
herbs, fruits, meats, dairy, poultry, honey, farm fresh eggs
and etc...

We are planning to sprout new
SQP CSA Co-Producers
along the way!
Do you grow or know someone who does?

Please help us to grow our more convenient
member assisted, Farm-To-Neighborhood (FTN)
delivery system* with new drop off sites in
Allen, East Allen, Anna, North and South Frisco, Garland,
East and West McKinney, Murphy, Downtown Plano, West
Plano, Richardson and Sachse, TX.
*New locations to be considered for groups of 5 or more.

Our Members' Referrals Welcomed!
We would be most happy to consider any of our
Squeezepenny CSA Members' referrals
to be considered as new members to join us
during our next "Upcoming" Season.

We hope to include all new members in our "Upcoming"
Season's harvests, so hurry and join now!

During most seasons we ask that you allow us at least
up to 12 weeks
(most of the time it is approx. 8 wks. & has been as soon
as 2 or 4 wks. when we have another member request to
reschedule, for what ever reason)
to work you into our subscribing members'
"tentative" bi-weekly distribution schedule.

We will ask you to select pick up either
every other Tuesday - from a F-T-N drop site or
from the farm every other Wednesday or
every other Thursday - from a F-T-N drop site.

Our Farm-To-Door personal delivery to your home or office is
an extra $5 fee per distribution of your Share.

Our North Texas weather will determine when we begin and
how far into the calendar year our fresh produce distributions
are possible.

We may also be asking for the help from one member of each
group of five (5) to take turns visiting our farm and pick up for
themselves and at least four (4) other members.
Check out our Farm's other pages for
additional information.

hearing from you and answering any questions  
you might have. Check back often for updates.

Braley's well house before and after!
The well is approx. 100 yrs. old.
Yes, there really is a place named Squeezepenny.
It is a rural Collin County, Texas community.
It is home!
Do you see who I see?

See how they grow

Bryan Braley's

There are several variances of disclaimers and common phrases that
cautions or even warns those who invest in the agricultural
commodities markets and/or their products.

To borrow just a snip-it from one,
There is always risk involved with trading futures and options.

True enough but this farmer puts an eco twist on everything.
So I came up with,

'The only clear option is to not be involved in trading away our
children's futures at any risk!'

Meaning I strongly believe that we can only decide to waste or fail for
our own generation and must instead protect the resources and rights
of our next generations to have their own fair chance to prosper.
It's called
"Sustainable Development!"
We need to make sure that there is plenty of land with enough
grass left for our future generations to live, work, play,
produce and prosper on!

Now it's Farmer Penny's Wishing Well.
Of course it works, just look below
