A visit to Overlook Farm
On Sunday October 27, a group from the First Religious Society took a field trip to Overlook Farm in Rutland, Massachusetts.
Overlook Farm is a 270-acre working farm and is the home to Heifer Project International's Northeast Regional office. Heifer Project International is an organization that helps limited-resource families in 116 countries move toward self-reliance through the gift of animals and training. The farm supports educational programs and activities.
Any group that visits Overlook Farm prepares a Third World meal over an open fire, visits replicas of various Third World dwellings, feeds barnyard animals, plays an educational game about world population and food supply, and even milks a goat and a cow.
For more information about Heifer Project International visit their website at Overlook.firstname.lastname@example.org or call them at 1-508-886-2221.
