We have two upcoming events for the farm. Please join us if you can.
Our upcoming event on May 20th, we will be holding a White Rose Dedication Ceremony in honor of our Vietnam Veterans.
On a rainy day Tuesday April 4 a group of Farmers Insurance employees came out to work on the Farm. The day’s events induced installing wiring a hot wire on the fence, cutting rolled roofing for the barn roof repair, framing a section of the barn wall for the window replacement and helping to clean the horse stalls. The group enjoyed working on the farm and plan to return.
Thank you for spending your rainy day with us at the Farm, we are looking forward to having you back again soon. A special Thank You to all of our volunteers, we cannot keep going without you!

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.

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.
