A Church for All People

Support Matthew 25 Farm

Greetings from the Farm! Farm manager Rick and assistants Katie and Chloe have been working long days getting fields planted and tending to the hoop houses.  Except for a handful of volunteers and board members, the three of them are trying to do the work that usually scores of volunteers help with.

We now invite volunteers back to the farm, in small groups of 22 or less. There are certain precautions that all must follow:   Volunteers must register as they come to the farm with one of our assistants. Temperatures will be taken and basic questions regarding exposure to COVID-19.Volunteers MUST wear a mask at all times, unless they are working alone at least 10 feet from anyone else.The farm recommends you also wear gloves and bring your own water/sunscreen.    You must let us know in advance if you are coming, by either emailing the farm (and receiving a confirmation back) or calling the farm manager at 315-558-2212. We are ONLY accepting volunteers at the LaFayette farm.
Second, we just learned that we can hold our golf tournament on Saturday, August 1st at Sunset Ridge Golf Club. More information is on our website. As you can imagine, this has been a difficult year for donations. The tournament proceeds will help us keep the farm going in 2021.  Here are some ways you can help:   Play in the tournamentSponsor a holeSell or purchase 50/50 ticketsPut together a basket for our raffleProvide an item for our silent auction   Due to COVID-19, we are committed to growing and donating as much produce as possible this year. We appreciate all help our volunteers and friends can give us.   Thank you! ~The M25F Team
