VALATIE — Tierra Farm, a manufacturer and distributor of certified organic food and coffee products, announces its annual giving campaign has returned more than $25,000 to community organizations in the area. This year, Tierra Farm is proud to have made a sizable donation to the Family Resource Centers of Columbia County. The contribution allowed the nonprofit agency to open a fourth branch in the Village of Valatie.
“Tierra Farm has become a pillar of this community and their support of our mission shows a dedication to assisting families from all walks of life in our community who are engaged in the vital task of raising young children,” said Bethany St. Dennis, executive director, Family Resource Centers of Columbia County.
The Family Resource Centers of Columbia County offers social and educational programs for parents of young children, in addition to offering assistance to families facing economic and personal challenges.
They have multiple locations across Columbia County.
In addition to the Family Resource Centers, the local Rescue Squad, Fire Department and Community Theater in Valatie, as well as Columbia County Youth Baseball and the Tendhai Buddhist Center have all received funding from Tierra Farm in 2017.
Tierra Farm was named to the 2017 Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing private companies in the U.S. after posting more than $21.4 million in sales in 2016 through the sale of its more than 200 products. All of Tierra Farm’s products are produced in small, hand-crafted batches and are 100 percent certified organic, certified gluten-free, certified kosher and GMO-free.
