Our partners are an essential part of the life at Fox Haven Farm. Partnership arrangements are worth a conversation, and we welcome your ideas. Chestnut Farm, the home to Fox Haven’s Learning Center activities is making an effort to replace grass with edible or useful plants or grazing animals, and have set a goal to reduce our lawn by 10% each year. We have many ideas and we also welcome yours. Partnerships are developed so that they are beneficial to both parties, the project leader and Fox Haven. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in discussing a partnership on Fox Haven’s Chestnut Farm.
