From The Executive Director
Happy Holidays from the Farm where the horses are blanketed , the other animals are nested in their straw, and the hay is stored for the cold winter months.
As we finish out the year at the farm, we are working to create efficiencies that lead to savings. One way to do this is to buy in bulk. When we can buy a semi-truck load of hay, it saves us about $2,000. That amount of hay will feed the farm for a month and a half. This is just one of the changes we plan to continue into the New Year. These small efficiencies will help us worry less about expenses and focus more on the Farm as an agricultural and environmental teaching campus for children offering a unique, hands-on learning experience.
Keep warm and enjoy the winter season,
Volunteer Of The Month
Thank You For Breaking Ice!
The weather came early and nasty this November. When temperatures dip into the -8°F region we have to break the ice 3-4 times a day to keep the animals hydrated. Your efforts during the cold spell were greatly appreciated by the animals and the TUF team. A big TUF thank you goes out to all of the fabulous volunteers who came out to break ice during the cold spell. To all the people who came out to help, including: Jason, Pam and their family, John, Michaela and Melissa, Susan, Liz and Cierra and anyone that we missed on this list – many THANKS!
