Hiram Farm was all abuzz anticipating a visit from Senator John Eklund (R), 18th District of Ohio who arrived on the Farm just after 10:00AM on Thursday, August 22. Although the farmers were hard at work harvesting vegetables and completing special orders of patio furniture in the woodshop, it was easy to spot the man in shirt and tie walking the farm and introducing himself to each of the farmers he came into contact with. Senator Eklund took time to speak to the farmers about their lives on and off the farm. He heard of the hopes and dreams of some, the personal accomplishments of others, and the growth and expansion of Hiram Farm since its inception in June of 2009.
“The Farm is plainly a place of caring and love, and when you add the professionalism and commitment that you and the staff bring to bear, I just know you are positively impacting the lives of your farmers and their families. I could feel it in my interactions with them that day,” comments Senator Eklund.
“We were honored by the Senator’s visit and his on-going commitment to assisting individuals and their families living with autism to live and work in settings that are supportive of their needs,” says De Ann K. Brewer, Executive Director for Hiram Farm.
