January 2021 Keeping you in touch with what is happening on the farm
New Year, New Look!
You may have noticed some changes on our website and social media pages. Founder and Executive Director Suzie Dudas noticed that interest in her for-profit dairy business, Jupiter Creamery, was more concentrated on the educational aspect of running a farm than on the sale of dairy products themselves. So, in 2018, she incorporated Nourishing Food for Thought as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. While Jupiter Creamery still exists today all profits are donated to Nourishing Food for Thought, with its mission of educating and empowering people to take an active role in the food they consume, has become our primary focus. With this in mind, you will start to see some changes in the way we brand our events, workshops, and products. But don’t fret! We are still located on the same property in Jupiter Farms and we are still operated by the same loving and devoted staff and volunteers. We hope we will have your continued support as we grow and reach for greater heights through our nonprofit arm.

Open volunteer hours are available every Thursday afternoon from 3:00pm to 5:30pm and on the second Saturday of every month from 9:00am to 1:00pm. Tasks for open volunteer hours include picking up sticks, cleaning water containers, changing nesting boxes, weed control, animal feeding and care, working in the garden, etc. Make sure to wear comfortable work clothes and bring a water bottle and gloves.
We also have upcoming opportunities to volunteer in the new community garden being installed and for special events.

We are currently accepting new or gently used garden tools to use in our new community garden. We are in need of chainsaws, weed wackers, drill/impact drivers, shovels, rakes, loppers, hoes, snips, hoses, leaf blowers, machetes, wheelbarrows, hammers, and more. Simply leave your donated tools by the front gate. Please call ahead if you need a receipt. Want to gift us a new tool? Check out our Amazon Wishlist.
