    Help Save a Native American Organic Farm

     
    Watch and comment: Dale Redhawk Thorpe says a USDA-approved bank made him sign a commercial loan instead of a farm loan and a forensic accountant says Redhawk was tricked. Now after years of high interest rates, the bank is trying to take his organic farm. Only 1% of farms in the US are organic and it takes 7 years to make land pristine. Redhawk has fresh water and developer want that too. Dale Redhawk Thprpe is cousin to Native American Olympian Jim Thorpe. The historic land has been in the Thorpe family since the 1940's, was owned by Peter Stuyvesant in the early 1700's and is located near where Gen. George Washington crossed the Delaware River to create our democracy. Always a farm and now the bank wants to sell it.

    Help with your advice. The Sandy storm caused damage and there is no sympathy from the township that is trying to shut Thorpe down so the land can be sold.

    Please support the farm: "Like" Thorpe's Facebook page called: Save Thorpe's First Nation organic family farm.
