THE FRANKLIN FARM
The Historic Metcalf-Franklin Farm Preservation Association, is a 501c3 and volunteer organization that continues to work on its three missions:
1. Preserve the historic fields, buildings, walls and farming
2. Provide Educational Opportunities for all ages
3. Provide natural, farm fresh vegetables for those experiencing food insecurities in RI
We welcome all ages to volunteer at the farm, to become involved with the association and become a part of our Board of Directors. Whether you have an hour or a day, we have a place for you!
We partnered with The Northern RI Food Pantry to collect over 600 lbs of food to donate. As a result of that partnership, we were thrilled to be invited to increase our impact! In August we invited the food pantry to be a beneficiary of the collaboration between The Ravenous Runners and The Franklin Farm and The Franklin Farm 5k. We are thrilled to spearhead this partnership so we can work together to address food insecurity in our community.
