WHAT WE STAND FOR
The day after Christmas in the year 2005 we lost our daughter to suicide. As we struggled to go on and try to deal with our lives without her, others in our family began to struggle with mental illnesses of their own. As a parent, we needed to bring our family together and include Cassie’s memory in our lives. Cassie’s love for rainbows is what inspired the Rainbow Race, our annual fundraiser held the second Saturday in May.
The Race was a great start, but we know we had to do more. There had to be a reason why we have seen all we have. With Cassie and God on our shoulders, our vision for our farm became clear. People with mental illness need a place to regroup and recover, and our farm provides the perfect setting for that.
Throughout life, we adapt to the path in front of us. The journey may not be easy, but it forms us along the way. Harvest Acres Farm has been fueled by passion, love, and the desire to make a difference in the lives of others.
