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!

Heumann Well Drilling spent a couple days on the farm installing a well for us that they donated 100% to the Freedom Farm. We cannot thank you enough for your time and donation to our organization, for giving us a supply of water for our animals, veggies, and roses to drink. Thank you again for your support.
Our annual Fall Festival was Saturday, October 7th scheduled from 1 to 7pm. With the sky clearing up, during the morning set-up, we were very hopeful that the storm was passing by us and would bring an enjoyable afternoon. Thank you to all our volunteers who came out to help us with final set-up preparations for our event; by 12:30pm we were ready for visitors to show up. New to our event this year: Patch 22 brought their ponies and gave pony rides to the kids; Grub n Go Food Vendor, a pie eating contest both for adults and kids, and finally apple and pickle bobbing.
We made it about 3 hours into the event before the rain came, but that sure didn’t stop people from hanging out in the barn and even the kids hanging out in the clubhouse and playing in the rain. Thank you to all who came and spent your afternoon with us, to our volunteers who baked for and who manned our bake sale table, as well as our volunteers who made the quilts and items for our raffles and silent auction. We are already planning for bigger and better for next year. Below is a sneak peak and some photos, please click on the link to be taken to our Facebook Page for all photos from the day.
