Now Offering Farm Tours! One more week left, November 14th!!
We will begin tours at Free Haven Farms beginning on Saturday, October 24th and every Saturday until November 14th. We're offering two different tour options:
Educational, edible tours will give you an extensive tour of our farm and the opportunity to taste various items that we're growing in season, straight out of the ground.
Hands-on, educational tours will provide a shorter tour with the opportunity to work on a project or two on the farm and gain valuable experience learning and trying various aspects of farm work.
Each tour will last approximately two hours and will require pre-registration. Limited slots are available to allow us to maintain social distancing and remain safe during the tours. Face masks/coverings will be required of all visitors to the farm, as well as employees, while guests are present on site.
Register now to reserve your slot while space is available!
Free Haven Educational Farms is a special place, for many different reasons. Supplying healthy produce to the community, especially those places we see affected most because of lack of access to healthy food, is our primary objective.What we've been able to find is that in these communities, providing the food is only addressing maybe half of the issue. Creating the long term improvements we are hoping to see, we realized that we would have to focus on education, the youth, the elders, and everyone in between. We have been able to focus on collaborations that can help us achieve our goal. We were going to have to make ourselves extremely accessible, and in a lot of cases, bring it to the people. Bring them the food, the education, the awareness, the opportunities.There are now few black farmers, and even fewer that are interested in educating their community, building bridges instead walls. What we are seeking is financial backing through the ones that are in support of the unique work we do. Finances to expand and continue the work of taking care of those that need it the most first......
