Winnsboro wins a prestigious award for Main Street

Anita Williams - Monday, April 20, 2015

Washington, D.C.’s Shaw Main Street,
Main Street New Jersey
and Winnsboro Main Street in Texas
Win ‘Innovation on Main Street’ Awards


Washington, D.C.’s Shaw Main Street, Main Street New Jersey
and Winnsboro Main Street in Texas Win ‘Innovation on Main
Street’ Awards Washington (April 1, 2015) — The National Main
Street Center announced today the winners of its first-ever
“Innovation on Main Street” awards. This award recognizes
Main Street organizations for successful, sustainable initiatives
that represent new approaches to an existing downtown revital-
ization challenges or opportunities. Awards were announced as
part of the National Main Streets Conference in Atlanta,
March 30-April 1, 2015.

“Our hats are off to each of the programs selected for the
Innovation on Main Street awards,” says Patrice Frey, president
and CEO of the National Main Street Center. “For the Main
Street movement to continue to be successful and relevant,
we will need to capitalize on changing trends, demographics
and economies. We applaud these programs for daring to
innovate and for energizing the field of downtown revitalization
with fresh ideas.”

Main Street New Jersey was selected for its “NJ350 Pop-Up
Store program” which gave participating Main Streets in New
Jersey the tools to create temporary retail shops in vacant
storefronts. The program, timed to coincide with the 350th
anniversary of New Jersey’s founding, provided state-related
merchandise, furniture, signage, marketing, technical support
and training to help the local Main Street organization develop
and promote the pop-up store. The program succeeded by
drawing shoppers downtown, supporting local craftspersons
and entrepreneurs, and attracting business owners to underutilized
or vacant retail spaces. By the end of 2014, 89 percent of the
empty retail spaces that were used as pop-up locations
were rented.


Shaw Main Street was honored for its “Art All Night” festival
which was expanded to four other Washington, D.C. Main
Street programs this year. Based on Paris’ Nuit Blanche, an
all-night citywide arts festival, Art All Night is a free overnight
arts festival that transforms businesses, vacant commercial
spaces and warehouses, libraries, recreation centers and parks
into performing and visual arts venues for one night only.  


The event is a win-win-win as artists and performers get
greater exposure, local businesses get a bump in foot traffic
and neighborhoods that may be unfamiliar or only thought
of as daytime destination get a boost. Using mostly free social
media promotion, Art All Night drew 45,000 visitors to five
commercial districts.  Shaw Main Street is a designated
DC Main Streets program.


Winnsboro Main Street program in rural Texas was recognized
for its “Shop Our Town First” program. With three Walmart
stores in the vicinity, local leaders saw the value in educating
the community on the importance of supporting Winnsboro’s
many specialty shops, restaurants and service providers. Events,
coupon books, branding and advertising have made the program
a great success, as evidenced by greater business receipts and
increased sales tax revenue—the latter was up by $10,000
compared to the same period in 2013. Winnsboro
Main Street is a Texas Main Street City.


The award is open to any Standard, Designated or
Coordinating Program member of the
National Main Street Center.

Falster Farm heads to New York. . .

Anita Williams - Tuesday, January 27, 2015

We find while "raising food fit to eat"™ there is never a dull moment on Falster Farm and 2015 is starting off with a lot of surprises, that's for sure!  As our friends and supporters, we wanted to let you in on the latest happenings. . .


James Beard

Celebrating TEXAS Heritage meat in NYC at the James Beard House.

Just 10 days after our organic beef is featured on Taste Texas tv with Chef Garth, we find our pork headed for New York City with Dallas' own renown Chef Graham Dodds from the Hibiscus Restaurant.

Our heritage pork, from pigs raised on pasture and fed raw whey, veggies and organic grasses will be featured during the hors d'Oeuvre portion of dinner as well as enjoyed during the main entree. We are humbled and honored to be the farmers and growers of this slow raised, non-soy, non-GMO marbled pork.

Thanks to Dr.Goble who will be covering responsibilities for us on the farm, we'll be in the audience enjoying the meal as much as anyone. We hope to share our mission and passion with those around us who enjoy food raised in a manner that honors the past while paving the way for the future.

We consider you our friends and allies and wanted to share this exciting news as we wish Chef Graham the best as he serves up fine Heritage Meat, TEXAS STYLE.


Sincerely,

Karl and Nancy Falster
