We extend our heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support of Birds & Beans coffee and our dedicated mission. Thanks to you, we experienced tremendous growth in 2023, expanding our reach to more farms and welcoming new customers. As we embark on the exciting journey that is 2024, our plans are set to amplify our impact even further, and we're counting on your ongoing support to champion the cause of protecting birds, family farms, and the precious Earth we all call home.
A key aspect of our commitment involves collaborative efforts with our esteemed Conservation Partners. In the coming year, our blog will shine a spotlight on the impactful work of one such partner each month, keeping you informed about the strides we're making together. It's our way of bringing you closer to the heart of our shared mission.
Last summer, we forged a meaningful alliance with the Adirondack Land Trust, an organization driven by the mission "To forever conserve the forests, farmlands, waters, and wild places that advance the quality of life of our communities and the ecological integrity of the Adirondacks." In May, Derek Rogers, the Stewardship Manager of the Adirondack Land Trust, conducted a comprehensive bird survey on the Adirondack farm from which our family sources its organic, pasture-raised chicken. This year, we are proud to announce our continued support for Derek's 'four-season' bird survey. These surveys serve as poignant reminders of the symbiotic relationship between nature, conservation, and the production of 'good' food, working harmoniously towards a healthier world.
To kick off the new year with a flourish, we are delighted to sponsor a captivating Zoom presentation by the Adirondack Land Trust, featuring Scott Weidensaul on January 11th, 2024. Scott has been a steadfast ally since 2008 in our journey to make 'Bird Friendly' coffee a resounding success. We invite you to join us for this enriching presentation, freely accessible at: Link to the Zoom presentation.
Here's to a year of growth, collaboration, and positive impact! Thank you for being an integral part of our community and for helping us make a real difference for birds, farms, and our planet.
Cheers to a brighter 2024!
