From time to time, we have to leave the farm for lunch, supplies, and even to assist other Veterans. The sign on the gate will give you a number to call to find out how long until we return. We apologize for the inconvenience, this only happens during our winter months when volunteers are few. Thank you for your patience, support and understanding.
Sunday, October 14th we held our annual Fall Festival at the Freedom Farm. The weather held out this year for us, making it a cool but wonderful day on the Farm. If you were able to come out and spend some time with us on the Farm and see what we are all about, thank you for joining us! If you didn’t make it this year, we welcome you to the Farm anytime! Thank you to Patch 22 for bringing their ponies again this year and donating pony rides for a few hours. Thank you to Lake County Farm Heritage Association for spending your afternoon with us as well as donating your barrel train rides. It was such a wonderful afternoon: we had games for the kids, pumpkin painting (paint a pumpkin that we will delivery to the VA on our Rose Delivery Sunday Halloween Week), we had a wonderful band who kept our guests entertained and dancing to such tunes as Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” . Thank you to Lake County Harm Heritage Associate as well as the Chris Patterson Memorial Foundation for your donations to our organization. We thank you to all who came out and spent the afternoon with us, to all of our volunteers who helped get ready for the event and most importantly to our Veterans and their families, we are here for you!

Please come and join us on Sunday October 14th from 1 to 7pm for our annual Fall Festival. This is a free event on our Farm open to anyone and everyone! Our event will happen rain or shine. We will have something for everyone! Pumpkin painting, bake sale, pie eating contest, a live band, just to name a few things. Parking will be on site in our pasture. Please come spend your Sunday afternoon and see our Farm and what we are all about. Please email or call with any questions you may have.
Come join us at Wadsworth Farmer’s Market every Wednesday starting July 11th from 3 to 7pm. Be sure to “like” and “follow” us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as we will be posting each week what we will have available. Thank you all for your support, looking forward to a great Market season.
We are actively fundraising for a new tractor for our Farm. We are raising money to purchase a new tractor for our farm. Our current tractor is over 35 years old, making it nearly impossible to find parts to replace when needed. The tractor we are wanting to purchase for our farm will be used to haul hay and feed, cut the fields, as well as other farm related tasks without having to take the deck off to add or remove blades or parts. This new tractor (pictured below) would come easy to use, fully equipped with what we need. We did apply for grants through several manufacturers, both in-kind and financial, but our requests were denied. So we are seeking the help and support of our community, family, and friends. In February, we held a gun raffle and raised $5,000 towards our new tractor fund. We thank you all for your continued support in our quest for our new tractor as well as believing in our organization.

Please come out and join us for our 2nd Annual event. The event will start at Noon sharp. There will be onsite parking in our pasture. There will be motorcycle parking out front if you would like to ride. All are welcome, this even is 100% free. While you are here, please feel free to visit and take a walk around the farm and see what we have to offer. We have two horses who love to be petted, chickens and goats who love to be fed. This event will happen rain or shine!
