What's been happening at the Farm in the past month

Dear Farm Friends,

Amanda’s brother suddenly passed away in April. A blessing of this tragedy is that he was an organ donor. Because of that, he was able to donate organs needed by several people across the country.

Due to this situation, we at the Farm have decided not to participate in the Wheat Ridge Carnation Festival parade this year with our Goats on a Float. After 3 wins in 3 years, it’s time to hang up our spurs/goat-ropers. We WILL continue to run the Pie Contest (baking, not eating).

This experience has made Amanda and her family more aware and involved with the Donor Alliance. Funds raised from this year’s Pie Contest will be donated to the Lutheran Foundation's Spiritual Care Fund in support of families of organ donors. In the coming weeks, Amanda will bring pies to the caregivers at the hospital in appreciation of the work that they do.

Losing a loved one has not been easy. Amanda’s brother was an amazing dad, 9/11 survivor, recovering alcoholic, and organ donor. His choice saved several lives. Please consider checking the donor box on your drivers license and learning more about this program.
