Rufus Bazley, Director of Marketing at BusinessesForSale.com says, “2019 was a record year for Small Business Big Heart entries so achieving regional finalist position is incredible. Sol Havens is our only farm-based business in the finals and the way it uses its rural space to enable isolated people develop their skills, enjoy a sense of purpose and build a feeling of community is inspiring. I’d like to congratulate all the staff and wish them every success in the next and final round of judging.”
