Around the Farm – Need to Know

We enjoy the wonderfully relaxed and inclusive atmosphere at New Freedom Farm. To keep things running smoothly and keep everyone feeling safe and welcome, we ask that anyone coming on site please keep the following things in mind:
 

  • Respect, managers, good communication and teamwork is required by all who come to the farm.
     

  • Wear old clothes (not a rule per say, but a great suggestion!).
     

  • Totally enclosed shoes or boots that can get dirty are required. Inappropriate clothing will result in folks being asked to leave the premises. If further clarification is required on what clothing is considered appropriate, please ask.
     

  • Pack a lunch and drinks for your visit.
     

  • No alcohol, drugs, bad language, or mistreatment of animals or humans will be tolerated.


There Are No Fees

As part of our philosophy to eliminate obstacles to recovery, the farm is open to veterans and their families free of charge. In order to continue to support our equine residents, visiting veterans, and farm operations, New Freedom Farm relies solely on volunteer support, charitable donations, and grants. With the farm itself proving to be its own best ambassador, we will always be seeking new ways to fundraise on our farm by hosting community events in order to keep our operation sustainable.
 

We Value the Privacy of our Veterans & Volunteers

We believe in privacy and information about tour veterans and volunteers is kept confidential. While we do post regularly on social media, we do not take photos, videos, etc. of anyone who has not signed a Media Release for confidentiality reasons.

Lois Dawn Fritz conducts ongoing and successive Facebook campaigns specifically oriented to our audience of veterans, those interested in equine activities, PTSD and substance abuse recovery, and veteran supporters. Through these initiatives, we have seen our Facebook following grow into the thousands; extending our reach across the U.S. and abroad.

 

Participation & Non-Discrimination

While we do welcome everyone to participate in events and programs at New Freedom Farm, we are not a riding facility and do not have the resources to provide riding lessons and other things associated with paid riding facilities. Our focus is on our veterans and their families and healing through horses.

We are a peer-to-peer organization. We do not have licensed therapists on staff or on site.

New Freedom Farm does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations. These activities include, but are not limited to, hiring and firing of staff, selection of volunteers and vendors, and provision of services. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, clients, volunteers, subcontractors, vendors, and clients.

New Freedom Farm is an equal opportunity employer. We will not discriminate and will take affirmative action measures to ensure against discrimination in employment, recruitment, advertisements for employment, compensation, termination, upgrading, promotions, and other conditions of employment against any employee or job applicant on the bases of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, veteran’s status, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
