A huge “Thank You” to all who participated!

We surely could not have done it without everyone’s help! You heard it right, our little farm tucked away in Temple, NH appeared as a GIANT across New England. Touchstone Farm recognized as a leader for improving mental health outcomes in the northeast, takes 2nd Place in the 2020 Red Sox Foundation IMPACT Awards!

What An Honor… This year’s Red Sox Foundation IMPACT Awards focus on nonprofits who have demonstrated an impact on raising awareness and improving mental health outcomes in their community. This funding will go a long way, as Touchstone Farm begins to tackle the influx of community need for all those struggling with significant mental health challenges across NH! Our veterans and their families, our at-risk youth, and all those with emotional, behavioral, cognitive, and physical burdens will experience improved life-altering outcomes as a result of equine-therapeutic lessons at Touchstone Farm!

We are so incredibly grateful for each and every one of you, our FAVORITE FANS!  Thank You, for voting! Thank you, for sharing! And Thank You, to the Red Sox Foundation and The Ruderman Family Trust for the $2,500 grant!
