The Thorpe Organic Farm store was closed by the Upper Makefield Township in PA. No specific citations in writing or verbally. Never responded to Thorpe's attorney who said, "contact me." "I'm certified by the state as a carpenter and the store is not in danger of collapse. Proper procedures has not been followed and there is no support from the Township. But we have a stack of harassing letters and no citations. We've had passed three previous inspections."  The store is one revenue stream that has now been blocked. Here's the latest: http://on.fb.me/Wbtjib.

Three things the Thorpes need: "We need on contingency or pro bono legal help to push against the bank's liquidation. As a community supported farm we need volunteers for the spring tilling season. We also an old fashioned roof raising after Sandy and fire damage put the family in distress. Developers want to close us down and build housing." Thorpe Farm one of the last Native owned organic farms in PA, near where Gen. Washington crossed the Delaware. The Thorpes are related to Olympian great Jim Thorpe and American explorer Daniel Boone. The plan is to bring the Bison back to PA. The animals, people and environment on Thorpe Farm are serene and in balance with Mother Earth.

The bank made a bait and switch from a farm loan to a commercial loan that distressed the Thorpe Farm in Pennsylvania. Now the bank is foreclosing and there is only a little window left to save it. Organic farms represent only one percent of all farm in the US but provide the healthiest foods. Dedication to this potential and honoring Native American history are among the promises Thorpe Organic Farm near Washington Crossing brings to our communities.
