NEW BERLIN, NY (WBNG) -- The owners of Gaia’s Way at Hawkridge Farm in Chenango County are using their platform to help those in need around them.

The non-profit organization aims to improve the physical and mental well-being of its community. They provide fresh fish, vegetables and eggs to food banks and shelters in the community year-round.

The organization also provides trauma recovery services to adults and children using traditional and equine-therapeutic methods.

For the group, it is a mission that deeply resonates and hits close to home.

“At different times in our lives, [we] have had to rely on the help of others, and using a food pantry was part of that help,” said Farm Manager Nancy Wiley. “Since those days we’ve worked really hard to give back to the communities where we lived.”
