A Special Note from Paul & Su (September 2014)
To our friends and supporters,
We are pleased to inform you that the ongoing nuisance lawsuit went to trial this summer and the Court ruled entirely in favor of Virginia Gold Orchard, dismissing all complaints.
However, we still need your help.
In the course of defending our rights, Virginia Gold Orchard has incurred several tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees. While these expenses were justified in light of the ongoing legal threat, this debt will take many years for our family to pay off and significantly jeopardizes the future financial health of the orchard.
We are therefore asking supporters and friends of the Virginia Gold Orchard to please consider making a contribution to help us raise the money to pay these fees.
We are also appealing to our fellow farmers and others in the community who support a farmer's right to earn a living from their land without the threat of unjustified nuisance lawsuits.
100% of the money contributed to the Right to Farm Legal Fund will be used to pay the legal fees associated with this case.
As a thank you for your support, we are pleased to offer packet(s) of Rosa Rugosa ("Korean Rose") seeds for contributions starting at $10, and coupons for use at the Orchard for contributions of $50 or more.
Thank you for your support and please visit us at the Orchard this fall!
