- Eli Larson completed projects that helped him earn his Eagle Scout Badge. These projects include: adding rock around our basketball court and small animal petting area, building a bench for the Freedom Farm goat pen which provides a safe spot for our riders to sit and pet the goats and a fun place for the goats to climb, and building 3 tables using wood from our school house building.
- Freedom Farm is blessed with many awesome friends. One of these friends is Loree Kinney who wrote this poem:
I’m a Freedom Farm kid and I can ride
Susie has my back with the walkers by my side
Some thought I was weak but they were wrong
I can sit on a horse and I am strong
Nobody knows what I’ve been through
But at Freedom Farm my horse just knew
I ride my horse and I sit tall
At Freedom Farm I can do it all
I may not walk and I may not run
But on my horse, I have some fun
I prance and I dance and I am free
I love my horse and my horse loves me
By Loree Kinney
