Farm Team

Jacob’s Reward Farm exists and serves because of the love, talent and dedication of many people, working toward the single goal of giving the Farm away.  The complete list of cherished volunteers goes on and on, but the following folks contribute in official capacities:

Cindy and her family live at Jacob’s Reward Farm.  Cindy was entrusted first with the property, and then with the vision of a farm that connects people to all the right things.  Cindy is the author of the recently published book, “Giving Away the Farm: How Kindness, Critters and Yarn Knit a Community Together,” available at Amazon.com.

The buck stops here.
