COMMUNITY EVENTS

Throughout the year there are several opportunities for the greater community around us to participate in events with us to promote awareness of our mission as well as to simply enjoy the farm with us.

Please consider joining us whenever you can!

UPCOMING EVENTS

Christmas 2018 Open Barn

On a weekend in December when Christmas draws near, we open our barn doors and invite everyone to Green Meadow Farm. Many past lesson families come to see their instructors and animal friends, and future lessons kids and parents come to meet us all. As folks enter the barn, Christmas music is playing, the horses are in their stalls, the sheep in their pens and the chickens are often wondering around. Every animal has a stocking which all are welcome to fill with apples, carrots, peppermints, notes, cards, quarters and dollars. Some have even made homemade horse treats in the past. Hot Cocoa, Cider, and treats await you in the Tack Room as you leave. It is one of our favorite times of the year….often like a reunion!

Lawn Party 2018

Before Green Meadow Farm had officially started, we had the dream of hosting a yearly “Lawn Party”. We wanted to have an old-fashioned time together in the Pasture Peace. Well, each year has taken a different twist but has become a high light for many. It may be a potluck, a strawberry shortcake extravaganza, a country fair, a kid rodeo, a drill team and /or a concert. It is both a fundraiser and a reunion. It is a time for old friends of the farm to invite new faces to come. The purpose is to give folks an opportunity to support us with clearer vision in whatever way they choose: by sharing financially, by encouraging us, and by going home with a commitment to pray in earnest for our work and ministry. This yearly event plays a big part in helping us to continue to bless future children and families who come from hard places to find restored joy in their journeys.

As we sit under the sprawling walnut trees with the sun going down, it is a time of peace and rest, a time to be thankful to our great God who makes it all possible.
