Holiday Market 2022

'Holiday Market'

Come one, come all, shop local at the

Holiday Market

Thank you all who came out to the Farm for our Annual Holiday Market. It was a fun-filled day with so many old and new friends experiencing some of the best local shopping, delicious food trucks and learning more about High Hopes programs and participants and our very special herd of therapy horses.
Visitors donated over 2,200 pounds of non-perishable food to the Shoreline Soup Kitchens and Pantries during a critical time of year for families experiencing food insecurity. We hope you’ll stay connected with us throughout the year! From all of us at High Hopes, we wish you a wonderful Holiday season.

High Hopes

What happens on that beautiful farm in Old Lyme? Is it as simple as the High Hopes mission statement: improving lives through horse and human interactions?

We believe it goes much further – a once fearful child develops trust in their horse, a non-verbal child learns the power of words, or someone with an uncooperative body develops the strength and skill to go off lead for the first time. Many of the children and adults we serve, including disadvantaged young people from inner cities, have learning or behavioral disabilities. It never ceases to inspire us, watching the incredible strides they make by building trust and confidence through the shared, unspoken connection with a horse.

Every day, we see the High Hopes mission come to life. Join us. We invite you to visit the farm and soak in the experience. Come learn more and help change lives.
