Amy's farm: a place to nurture your spirit
People always ask, “Is there a real Amy?” Yes, that’s me!
I remember, as a small child, lying in the grass, looking at the blue sky, listening to the birds, and thinking: This is the place to be -- outdoors.
As I grew older, I loved hanging out with my farm animals; I adored working in the soil, growing vegetables in my garden. I am privileged to have grown up on a farm and I want to give that lifestyle to my own five children. I believe in playing outdoors. I believe in climbing trees. I believe in living life "unplugged".
When my father, Randy, and I developed Amy’s Farm 25 years ago, my dream was that I could share with others the joy of farm life. I knew that every human spirit longs for a place where they can commune with nature. Everyone should have the opportunity to kneel on the sun-warmed ground and dig one’s hands in the soil and harvest a fresh carrot for a snack. Every child should experience the thrill of standing next to and hugging a horse.
Amy’s Farm is the culmination of that dream. With the help of family and friends, Amy’s Farm has grown to be the reality of that vision. Thousands of school children visit every year to take a tour with a trained and educated tour guide. Hundreds of volunteers come year round to plant and harvest. As we care for the earth and all that God has given us, we all reap the benefits of the bountiful harvest.
Now, as we enter into our 26th year of service to our community, I would like to thank you, our patrons, customers, friends and family, for being a part of our farm community. Thank you for your support, your friendship, and your involvement with Amy’s Farm.
We hope to see you down on the farm soon!
