For the last thirty years, Heifer Farm has been an inspirational and multi-cultural presence in Central MA. It served as an educational center for visitors and interns who wanted to learn more about Heifer International and its mission to help alleviate poverty and hunger around the globe.
While Heifer International is still going strong, the Heifer Farm educational site in Rutland, MA will close its doors at the end of December. As usual, it will hold a free Holiday Fair for the next two weekends. I took some time today before the holiday hustle and bustle to enjoy the variety and beauty of the animals and the uplifting landscape of the site for one last time.
I encourage you to visit and donate to Heifer International during this season of giving.
