More about the Fauquier Education Farm:

OUR MISSION

The Fauquier Education Farm exists to advance agriculture & agriculture-related education through best method demonstrations, classroom instruction, on-farm workshops, & hands-on learning. The Farm supports the community by contributing all of its fresh produce to local food banks & by providing richly rewarding volunteer opportunities.

LETTER FROM EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR JIM HANKINS

Looking back at 2020 it was easy to see how necessary the mission of the Fauquier Education Farm is. Because of the economic downturn many families found themselves facing food insecurity. The success of the farm’s 2020 season is vivid proof that our community cares about feeding our neighbors. 71,428 pounds of fresh produce was grown & donated- 10,000 pounds more than any previous year. This was done while facing COVID 19 restrictions that meant that most of the large group volunteer opportunities were lost. We were able to do this because of our regular volunteers- a smaller workforce of families & individuals who showed up, put a mask on and got to work.

Success wasn't just limited to our volunteers, our financial supporters came through as well, to prove the value they place on the services we provide. Individual donors & local businesses stepped up during Give Local Piedmont & Giving Tuesday. Several local foundations continued to provide the essential financial backing that helps us keep the doors open & the services flowing. When COVID restrictions meant we couldn’t hold our Feast from the Field fundraising event our Board of Directors organized our Fall Farm Festival, a safe outdoor family event, & our community showed up & made it successful!

In 2020 the Fauquier Education Farm was a point of hope & generosity that our community found easy to support. It is an extraordinary privilege to be a part of this special organization. From myself & our Board of Directors we would like to thank every one of our supporters for making this possible.
