We are a small family farm that over several years has grown to become a family enrichment center for our area. We host free to low cost programs that encourage family bonding, learning and health for all ages. Our program has been running for many years now and has grown to the point where we need an indoor studio (with a restroom) so we are not so weather dependant. We would love to offer more in the areas the arts, movement and sciences without being so weather dependent. The time and funds to operate this program have become a full time job for at least one member of our household, Being able to have an indoor studio & recieve some reimbursements for supplies & operational costs would allow us to be able to continue to make these programs available to everyone regaurdless of economic status; this is very important to us. Coming to our farm is an opportunity for families to get lost in an unstructured enviroment and relax. Many  come just to walk our trails, read while in a tree hammock, work with our animals or just to be mindful. Studies have shown that being outside in nature or interacting with animals relaxes, heals, enriches and builds mental awareness and clarity. Not all families have resources, space or place to engage in the manner they do on our farm. We would love to contine to share our farm with others. Please help us to continue to grow! (check out photo albums and our great testimonials in the notes section of our facebook page).
Thank-you for investing in quality family time and enrichment.

We are so excited we have high hopes to begin working very soon on our restroom, We have also collected some supplies to begin "scent~sory" garden and play area. We have collected about $150 in additional donations above operating costs. Help us get this project launched and to continue to share the beauty of spending time outside with others.
We love to share & encourage friendships
All ages are engaged at our farm

We need your help to continue running programs this summer. Unless we can secure an alternate restroom we may need to make some program cutbacks. For the past 6 years we have used our personal restroom for guest use. The use has exceeded what we can manage at this date. We have 3 options: begin charging for all of our programs (most are currently free) which we don't want to do (it would exclude many families) or request donations from those who can help. The 3rd options is to close our farm until we can make adequate arrangements. Please help us keep this green space open to everyone. We need at least $1500 to continue programs.

We have adjusted our campaign to cover basic spring operating costs and a free standing restroom for our guests. In order to proceed with seasonal scheduling the restroom has become a major need. We would love to be able to add 4-6 pod swings for our special needs guests these run approx $150 each but are a tool that helps to create harmony, peace and a sense of relaxed security for those who need it. These of course can be enjoyed by everyone also! Please help us reach our goal and enable us to share with others through our outdoor programs. A huge thank you to those who have already donated your gift is a treasure to us and those who visit us to find a place for exploration, family time and peace in a busy world.

Imagine the possibilities!!! Please consider a donation to our building and operational fund if you enjoy our farm and outdoor space. We entertained an average of 50 guests per week for approx 40 weeks out of the year last year. We also donated resources and many hours to the community off site. If each guest made a donation of $2.00 that would cover our costs for feed, property maintenance (gas for mowers etc). If each guest donated $5.00 we could provide an accessible bathroom as well. If each guest donated just $10.00 we would be able to host more programs with less weather dependency because we could build a studio to get out of the elements on cool or wet days. At a donation of more than $20 we could devote more man power and add many more stations that we are currently soliciting donations from companies for. Help us provide quality family enrichment to everyone in our area. We know not everybody is able to make a contribution but some cam make a bit more together we make nature and quality time on the farm and on our trails available to everyone.
Best spent afternoons.....
