Special Project Support: Farmer Brown’s Barn
The family of animals that live here play important roles at Fairytale Town – as well as in the stories they represent. Plans have been made to renovate Farmer Brown’s Barn so that the animals will have more space to eat, stretch their legs, play, sleep and dream. The plan includes a new wall for a honey bee display complete with remote entry/exit for safe and easy access, adding new stall gates, expanding and redesigning of the storage area to maximize space, reinforcing and adding polymax to the siding to minimize dry rot, and – most importantly – increasing the size of Eeyore’s stall.
Donations of all levels are needed now to make this project a reality. The cost of the project is approximately $35,000. The work will begin during the winter months and will be completed by the beginning of summer – our peak season. We hope you will join us in making these improvements a reality.
To make a contribution to the barn renovation project, click on the “Donate Today” button below. To make a lead gift and receive plaque recognition, please contact Kathy Fleming at (916) 808-7060 or Diana Oliver at (916) 808-4537.
Adopt an Animal
Help Farmer Brown provide for Fairytale Town’s friendly flock of farm animals! Your support helps to underwrite food, treats, grooming supplies, veterinary care and the maintenance of animal homes. All supporters receive a photo and bio of the animal they have adopted, plus a listing in our biannual newsletter, The Humpty Herald. Depending on the level of support, you may also receive recognition on our Donor Wall in the park and a plaque on the animal exhibit for up to one year.
Adopt a Bench
Did you—or someone you know—play at Fairytale Town as a child? Consider paying tribute or homage by adopting one of the benches located throughout the park. When you adopt a bench, your special message will be inscribed on a plaque and placed on one of Fairytale Town’s benches. Your words may be a dedication, memorial, or a gift to a person or an organization.
- Option 1: $2,500 Exclusive Bench. Your personal message will be engraved and mounted on your own bench with your very own plaque.
- Option 2: $1,500 Shared Bench. Your personal message will be engraved and mounted on a bench with one other plaque.
Plaques can support four lines of text with 50 characters per line, including spaces. Each bench plaque is made from durable recycled plastic to show our commitment to the environment. All memorials are good in perpetuity.
Donate a Vehicle
If you have a vehicle that you are thinking of trading in or selling, consider donating it to Fairytale Town through Donation Station or Car Program. When your vehicle is sold, the proceeds will go to Fairytale Town to help support arts and literacy educational programs as well as upgrades and maintenance of the grounds. You may also be able to deduct the fair market value of your vehicle as a charitable contribution for income tax purposes.
Both Donation Station and Car Program accept most vehicles, including cars, trucks, trailers, boats and RVs. If you have any questions, or would like more information, please call Donation Station at (877) 833-2433 or Car Program at (800) 240-0160.
