There are so many reasons to donate to Wakeman Town Farm this Giving Tuesday, but the biggest reason is love. 

Our mission is to serve the community — and we do so every day with joy and love…but we can’t live on love alone. As a volunteer-run organization, Wakeman Town Farm relies on programming revenues and donations to stay afloat. Our programs pay a portion of the bills, but in order to keep the lights on, a steward in residence, and the animals fed, the farm’s expenses are defrayed by contributions from  the community.

Did you know that a small volunteer teamraises all the farm’s operating funds through programs, space rentals, events and fundraisers? We are proud of the programs and events we run for the benefit of all Westporters. If you like our new space, you may be interested to know that we borrowed and raised all the money to build out Tim’s Kitchen, and we must raise all the money to run it every year and pay back our loan. Every appliance, pot, pan, Mixmaster and spatula was either paid for by our team’s efforts or through generous donations.

Please help us continue our mission to keep one of the Town’s last remaining farms and educational centers alive for the next generation!
