Help us move to New Hampshire and boost the local economy!
« on: July 24, 2014, 07:21:54 pm »

We are the Beaulieu Family. We are an active duty Navy family. In 2010, Ken was deployed to Haiti after a devastating earthquake. The horrific scene of human tragedy left him scarred both mentally and physically. After three years of battling with the demons of that deployment, Ken was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and a debilitating shoulder injury that would end his career in the Navy. He found healing in growing a small garden and volunteering at his wife Rebecca's small catering business that also opened in at a local open air market. Being able to connect to people over a cup of coffee, or work quietly in his garden led Ken to believe that this was his calling. Rebecca set out to help Ken make this dream a reality. She found several organizations that specifically worked with veterans to become farmers ( Ground Operations and the Veteran Farmer Coalition) Together, they began planning to start a small family farm that could provide local goods to their catering business/coffee house. The small community of Barnstead, New Hampshire seemed like the perfect fit. The coffeehouse would serve as a place for local artisans, farmers, musicians, politicians, activists, and just family and friends a place to gather. By using local produce from our farm and other nearby farmers solely at our coffeehouse, we would be providing a stimulant to the economy. It is also our goal to be donate a large portion of our profits to local and international charities. Please help us make our dream a reality and to support veterans moving from the battlefields to the farm fields and helping them become creators and cultivators. Please check out our KickStarter and Facebook page and consider partnering with us. We are excited to make NH our home.
