Jenness Farm "Raise the Barn"!
We are constantly getting inquiries about product-making classes, field trips to tour the farm, day camp/educational programs, and taking in/rescuing animals that need to be re-homed. As we try to look ahead to the endless possibilities, we are also looking to you, our followers, friends and patrons for your help. At this time, our barn is at capacity and there is one full-time and two part-time people here. We have already invested in the beginning of the improvement of the lower end of the property for the creation of the barn and pasture areas. The plan is to move the goats out from under the shop and build a new, larger barn with pasture and "play space" with a climbing structure to provide the animals with more stimulation and exercise. In addition, we will incorporate an all purpose classroom above the barn and a small outdoor classroom area for classes/camp and tours adjacent to the new barn. This will also open up the opportunity for college internships, volunteers, etc. Our intention is to host field trips with school and civic groups, summer day camps and any educational opportunities that we can offer. We just LOVE to educate children about the importance of farming and everything that goes along with it, especially respecting and appreciating animals, and our environment. As you know, our animals have a great life here, and we would love to open our doors to other animals who are less fortunate, and provide them with the loving home they deserve.
Jenness Farms' resources are very modest at this time...would you, as our valued customers & supporters, be interested in donating to help us reach this goal? We appreciate any donation big or small, every little bit will help! And your continued support by simply spreading the word about our wonderful products is ALWAYS appreciated!
