Home Depot Builds a Fence

On November 10th, the crew from Waukegan Home Depot spent the day with us on the farm building the new fence between the chicken yard and big horse pasture. We were awarded a grant from The Home Depot Foundation to purchase the materials needed to build this fence.  The crew came out early morning, spent the better part of the morning with us working on the fence.  Then, after lunch, just about everyone called it a day.  We cannot thank Home Depot enough for your generous support, and the crew for coming out to install and paint the fence.  Thank you so much for believing in us and what we do.  Here’s sneak peak of some photos, please click on the link below to be taken to our Facebook page to view the rest (there’s over 100!)

Farmer’s Insurance Volunteers

On Thursday November 3 employees from Farmers Insurance Group came out the Farm to help with some of the maintenance and daily chores on the farm. They worked to clean the brush off the far rear of the property, put up fencing, cleaned the duck pond and chicken coop and other cleanup activities.  While there they were told of a need for some paint so they purchased the paint for the farm to use for future use on fencing.  The group enjoyed the day and seen the positive feel of the farm and will be returning to help again.

Fall Festival

Saturday, October 22nd from 1-7pm was our annual Fall Festival and a great time was had by all who joined us.  The day turned out beautifully.  We had all kinds of activities for kids including pumpkin painting, cornhole/bean bag toss, and even horseshoes just to name a few.  We had a spray on tattoo artist, 50/50 raffle, as well as our farm store and a wonderful bake sale.  Thank you to our board members and all our volunteers who helped put this event on and make this a huge success. If you joined us, thank you very much for coming out, we hope you had a wonderful time and will come join us throughout the year as well as at next year’s event.
