Our Sincere Condolences

The Freedom Farm would like to offer our condolences to the family and friends of our military brother, Lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz, who was shot and killed while investigating suspicious activity in Fox Lake.

Summer updates

We hope everyone is having a great summer so far!

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!

Summer Project Help

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.

Indiegogo Campaign

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.
