Happy Holidays from Better Farm!
Our tree is up, the lights are strung around the house, and things have finally quieted down around here after a flurry of spring, summer, and fall activity. We're using this opportunity to revamp our programming, streamline our business plan, ready for our New Year's Eve party, and foster and nurture our networking and outreach efforts.

We've been drafting plans for completion of our Art Barn renovation, fine-tuning our vegetable-preservation methods, organizing toolsheds and greenhouses, getting the garden winter-ready, and upping our involvement in community action. We've also installed an indoor aquaponics system, scooped up a few awards, and made our way onto several local news networks. Thank you to all who have been involved and showed support for these projects, and spread the word about the work we're doing! You can learn more about how to get involved with these endeavors below.

Please contact us to schedule a visit or tour, or visit to find out more about what we're doing. From all of us at Better Farm, we wish you a peaceful, happy holiday season.

Viva Better!
