Fenimore Day at Ellms Farm

Fenimore Day at Ellms Farm

Every fall since 2005, Ellms Family Farm opens its gates to welcome people from all over the Capital Region to their farm in Ballston Spa, NY. For many families, the combination of activities, pumpkins, and cider donuts make it a ‘must-do’ event.

Fenimore had the opportunity to partner with Ellms for the 2022 fall season to sponsor the music stage and host a Fenimore Day. During the Fenimore Day, members of the Fenimore team and their families spent a Saturday at Ellms passing out donuts and hosting guessing games for attendees.

‘Supporting our community for generations’ continues to be part of Fenimore’s legacy and the team was thrilled to enjoy a day with their families and support a 3rd generation family business, Ellms Family Farm.

The Joshua Project Summer Lunch Program

The Joshua Project Summer Lunch Program

The Joshua Project does wonderful things feeding our neighbors throughout Schoharie County and Fenimore was thrilled to work in partnership with them to provide lunches and healthy snacks to individuals and families during this past summer.

Throughout the month of August, every Friday a team of associates would cook and serve pizza, prepare salads, fruits and snacks to attendees. Across the four Fridays, Fenimore assisted in preparing and serving over 175 lunches at the Cobleskill United Methodist Church.


“Partnering with the Joshua Project to help serve lunches this summer has been an honor. Knowing that we contributed in a small way to being part of a community that helps and serves others is inspiring.”

Food For Thought

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

The Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York distributed more than 51 million pounds of food and grocery products in 2021 — the equivalent of 42 million meals — across 23 counties! The need is great … and growing.

The Regional Food Bank is responding to the surge in demand for their services due to rising grocery and fuel costs, while also handling supply chain issues and rising operational costs. Their mission “is to alleviate hunger and prevent food waste.”

In mid-March, our associates helped Regional Food Bank partner agencies load their food orders. It was a very enjoyable and meaningful morning!

Thinking Spring in Oneonta

Thinking Spring in Oneonta

The Fenimore team delivered 38 packages to the residents at Springbrook NY, Inc. on a rainy spring morning. We filled the packages with birdfeeders, birdseed, umbrellas, and thoughts of warm weather to come.

Springbrook is an organization that provides support and services to people with developmental disabilities across central NY. Visiting and touring the campus was a delightful and meaningful way to spend a morning.

Despite the rain, we hope we brightened the residents’ day, and we enjoy being part of such a giving community.

At Fenimore, we’ve long found that community service is good for the soul — especially when you’re helping those who help others.

A group of our team members recently donned their gardening gloves, grabbed their tools, and set out to beautify the grounds of Cobleskill Regional Hospital.

It’s our way of saying thanks to our hometown healthcare heroes for their service during the COVID-19 crisis and every day of the year.
