We’ve a few updates on life at the farm …
We were proud to be on full display at the recent PFC Geoffrey Morris Memorial Fishing Tournament and glad we are able to support them.
Our gardens are beginning to fill out. We have enough to have produce at the Wadsworth Farmer’s Market. Come on out and support us every Friday from 2-7.
Our young chicks are not looking so little anymore, they are out and about as are the matriarchs.
The horses are out and enjoying the weather, they’d love some extra attention.
We are disappointed to report that our fund raising efforts via Indiegogo were not much of a success. We will try again this fall in the hopes that we can get some of our projects completed in 2015.
Remember to come visit us… we’re here 7 days a week!
As many of you know, we are working on all kinds of projects here at the farm. At this time, we are asking for some financial assistance from our supporters to enable us to continue to support military veterans and their families.
To that end, we are running an Indiegogo fundraising campaign and are asking for everyone to take a look, consider contributing and, very importantly, share our campaign with friends and businesses you know that might consider supporting us.
We are seeking funding for several different necessities and projects including:
- Duck pond improvements
- Well for fresh water
- Barn Improvements
- Equine Program
- Flush Toilets
We thank all of your for your support and consideration, we’ll keep you posted on our progress and our projects as they move forward.
Happy Spring from Freedom Farm. Things are growing and blooming here at the farm. If you haven’t been in awhile, you really need to stop and smell the flowers :)
We had some sad news in the loss of our furry friend Elle who has greeted visitors at the farm daily since opening and will be sorely missed by all of us.
On a brighter note, we’ve got some adorable new chics that are almost ready for y’all to come and visit.
And best of all, the folks at DK Contractors (who donated and delivered the stone) and Tuff Shed made possible these awesome new clubhouse (and a handicap bathroom) for our Kids Ranks kids … the Tuff Shed guys worked past dark to get these done! We are so thankful and these are absolutely awesome.
Elle … we will miss you!

Club House bathrooms are done too. How cool!
We have a couple of updates to share for spring …
We want to share with you our new partnership with the PFC Geoffrey Morris Fishing Tournament. The tournament is held annually in June on the weekend after Fathers Day at North Point Marina, Winthrop Harbor, Illinois (June 26-28, 2015). The Tournament proceeds will benefit the Heroes of Freedom Memorial and Freedom Farm for Vets. Its purpose is to assist the families of our serviceman or woman from all branches whether Active, Reservist or Veterans status. 2015 is the 11th annual tournament.
We also want to share our excitement about the Heroes of Freedom Memorial, a memorial that is being built in the wonderful city of Wauconda to honor ALL Iraq/Afghanistan veterans. This effort was started by Kirk Morris, father of PFC Geoffrey Morris, who was killed in Iraq in 2004, along with a wonderful group of volunteers.
We are very proud to be partnering with these two groups and hope you share our enthusiasm and support for these two efforts.
We also have to thank Maddie once again, because of the article in the Zion News … Temple Farms donated a truck load of hay for our horses. Thanks Again Maddie!
