March 01, 2016
Hopewell Therapeutic Farm for adults with mental illness announces the reopening of its completely remodeled and expanded Farm & Craft Market on its campus here, according to Rick Karges, Executive Director/CEO.
“We have created a great store to connect Hopewell to the community by offering produce, crafts and art provided by our farm and residents,” said Karges. “Store hours are Wednesday through Friday from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.”
The new version of the Farm & Craft Market is much larger than our original store and is located just south of Hopewell’s administrative building on Route 534. Hopewell animals are located nearby.
The market sells Hopewell’s award-winning maple syrup, bird houses, cutting boards, artwork, ceramics, soaps, handmade jewelry, farm-fresh eggs, flowers, plants and more. A wood shop makes custom signs. Almost all the items found in the store are made by the residents and staff.
According to Sandy Thomas, Farm and Craft Marketing Manager, “The Market is proud to offer an ever-changing inventory of new items created from the inventive minds of our Hopewell family.”
