Horn Farm Happenings – March 4

Last Saturday, Scoutmaster George Gayman supervised his 70th Eagle Scout project. Not all 70 projects are at the Horn Farm! One you’re all familiar with is the Horn Farm sign that you can see from Route 30. That sign has introduced the Horn Farm Center for Agricultural Education to thousands of people. We are delighted to have had Boy Scout Brandon Sprenkle design and build the two display cases on the front porch wall. We plan to fill these beautiful cases with examples of the plants and animals that live on the Horn Farm. Thank you!
