Since the early 2000’s, Dalby Farm in Scituate, MA has been working on a difficult mission: Educate the community about the importance of preserving rare farm breeds and encourage environmental conservation.

Home to many rare farm breeds ranging from rare poultry to livestock, each season the family owned and operated farm offers multiple educational programs and events.  A popular spot for school field trips, birthday parties and summer learning programs, children are given positive experiences with plants and animals in hopes that they will carry a new appreciation for nature with them into the world after they leave.

In the face of global warming and other severe environmental threats, it is more important than ever to instill a sense of responsibility in the up and coming generations.  It has become clear that the future of our planet’s wellbeing is not only in our hands, but our children’s as well. Without proper exposure, it is our fear that children will lack the personal context needed to become the advocates the environment and its creatures need so badly.

Unfortunately, the farm cannot run on passion alone. New England has its fair share of inclement weather, which forces the farm to close down public offerings for nearly 6 months of the year. Revenue streams are limited during the Fall and Winter months but the price of feed and general upkeep remains consistent and overwhelming. 
To make matters more complicated, key members of the family have struggled with debilitating health conditions that currently hinder our current ability to expand. Even so, our family of five pushes on- taking every penny earned from farm offerings and putting it right back into operations. 

Without government funding, a non-profit status or even regular donations, our family needed to create an opportunity for supporters near and far to help keep the farm running. Your contribution will make 2017 the best year yet!

Don't feel like donating? You can still help! Make a purchase from The Dalby Farm Country Store - all revenue goes directly back into the farm :)
