Wish List

The Friends of the MKR Farm has a wish list of items needed for the farm. We are looking for:

  • riding lawn mower blades
  • new citrus trees to enhance the grove
  • new trail marker signs

Recently, the Friends of the Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Farm provided matching funds so that the park could purchase its very own electric utility vehicle. The vehicle is being built to order and should arrive in time for our summer chores, which include re-bedding and fertilizing the citrus trees. You most likely won’t see the vehicle on tour days, but it sure will come in handy on work days. We will post pictures in the next newsletter. THANK YOU, FRIENDS!
