Cobblestone Farm Association :: Goals
Print Close Window

CFA committees establish goals, seek support and enthusiasm:

Supporters of Ann Arbor’s historic farm museum can bring their interests and talents to help the Farm meet its Goals toward fulfilling the Mission of the Association:

“...to provide an example of a Washtenaw County farmstead, showing aspects of its evolution as a cultural landscape from early settlement in the nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth century, and by demonstrating agricultural, architectural, domestic, religious, and social customs and activities across time, to create an increased awareness of the contribution this historic resource makes to the strength and vitality of the community.”

Call the CFA to show your interest and support. The committee chair will return your call with open and heartfelt enthusiasm.
