Our Mission 8/12/2016

Our mission at Abby's Farm and the start of projects envisioned were delayed slightly in 2015.  As such, we spent the first part of the year organizing administratively and getting our house in order to prepare for this exciting undertaking.  We began in earnest building and preparing the first phase (roughly 25% of total) of our raised beds gardens in June and were completed by the end of the year.  Our greenhouse was ordered and delivered in late 2015, but was not operational by the end of the year.  The beautification and herb projects were both begun in the fall of 2015 and will be an ongoing project that is never totally complete.  However, the groundwork has been laid for extensive long term improvement.  We secured a donor that is willing to underwrite our chicken coop project in 2016 and we look forward to seeing that through to completion.  At year end, we had approximately 40 volunteers (80/20 rule) with roughly 25% of that number coming out and working on the farm on a regular basis.  The results are largely due to our investment in the website and subsequent involvement in the various social media sites for constant communication with our constituents.
