We would like the logo to capture the essence of the old war garden propaganda posters from the early 1900's. Our farm is passionate about preserving genetic diversity, so our focus is on raising heritage breed animals, and growing heirloom variety produce. We NEVER use any pesticides. We are organic & non GMO.
What is a Victory Garden?
Here are some propaganda posters from the time period when Victory Gardens were prevalent. I think these posters are SO COOL!
What does heirloom & heritage mean?
How did we choose the name The Victory Garden farm for our farm? Well, let me explain. We just bought our farm on May 28th 2015. This farm is LITERALLY my dream come true! I've been farming for the last 4 years, but I have always worked on other people's farms.
I had a completely different name picked out.
When we bought this farm however, the name I had picked out just didn't work. My family and I tossed a lot of ideas around, but we finally came to the name "The Victory Garden Farm" for the following reasons.
My name is Vanessa, so I have an affinity already, for the letter V.
V for Victory
The farm is located 1/2 mile north, of the birthplace of Flag Day.
My partner is in the US Military and we are a very patriotic family because of that. Once my partner learned the history of Victory Gardens, he felt a connection. It tied his military career into the farm.
Our farm is small. I will be growing on 5 acres. In the farming world, small scale farming is called, "market gardening" We have a "Market Garden" So my thought process took me to, "Victory Market Garden" then to, "Victory Garden" but since we raise animals, that makes us a farm. So, that is what lead to the name, "The Victory Garden Farm"
I'd like simple, clean, vintage design. I'd like the logo to incorporate the colors red, white & blue, but not to actually have an American flag. We are patriotic, but I want that influence to be subtle. Although I'd like the logo to have a red, white & blue color scheme, I'd still like to the logo to look nice if it was stamped in one color.
