On Wednesday, September 10, 2014, the final payment was made on the mortgage. This payment was made 3 1/2 years early due to the dedication of prior and current board members, members, donors, and volunteers who have supported HMFA's plans and goals for the Farmstead.

Farmstead Grounds Update!

Drivers passing by the Farmstead will notice that work continues on the grounds as the timber is being cleared and property line trimmed. The HMFA signage area has been spruced up and landscape planting added. Watch for a new fruit tree to bloom in the spring.  Of special interest is the walkway south of the home that recently has been revealed through the work of Dean Campbell, one of HMFA's hard-working volunteers.  Work days are scheduled to resume in the spring.

HMFA will gladly accept gently used garden items (shovels, rakes, garden hoses and/or carriers, brooms, etc.) to use in future Farmstead improvements. Contact Cindy Rankin at 736-5366 or email stevecindyr@yahoo.com.
