PLEASE help thy neighbor today. “EZ Pound of Ground” fundraiser launched by local farms & ranches to aid West Marin’s Porrata-Powell family. The mother Alex Porrata, who I went to high school with, is struggling to make ends meet after the unexpected death on February 2nd of her husband Roneil Powell. This happened just weeks after their 4-year-old son EZ (Zeke) was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. Mother and children are being put through a series of tests of courage and character that will make you question everything you know to be true.
To help a few of us Victorian Farmstead, Tara Firma Farms and BN Ranch have launched the “EZ Pound of Ground” Fundraiser (details below), with 100% of proceeds supporting the Roneil Powell Memorial Fund.

My local business Victorian Farmstead has partnered with Tara Firma Farms and BN Ranch to raise money for this family in a way that EVERYONE can participate in.
- VF and TF are each putting 100 one pound packs of ground beef up for sale for $20 each available now. BN Ranch is adding in in 100 one pound packs of ground turkey available starting in a week.
