Finding ways to give back to the community is something that’s always been important to the Tanner’s Team. That’s why we’ve made a point to partner with many different charities, including The A.R.K., The Freedom House, and multiple food pantries throughout the Central Illinois. From campaigns to donation drives, we’ve worked hard to raise money and bring awareness to each cause. The following is a list of some events we hold annually to show our support.
Goats + Yoga
Tanners Orchard partners with Willow City Farm to host their annual Goats + Yoga class! Sip cider, eat donuts, take amazing fall photos, and get your daily exercise in with Tanners Orchard’s cutest residents. Those interested can sign up for this event with Willow City Farm by calling 217-899-4562. Adults and children tickets are priced separately and include free cider and donuts. Best of all, a portion of all ticket sales goes directly to local charities in recognition of Suicide Awareness Month.
The Purple Pumpkin Project
October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, which is a cause the Tanner’s Team is very passionate about, and one that we know many of our fans are too. To help raise awareness, we paint and sell hundreds of our purple pumpkins throughout the month. Customers can donate more if they feel compelled, as all proceeds go to the Freedom House—a domestic and sexual violence center with locations in surrounding counties of Tanners Orchard.
Cans For Care
Our Cans for Care Campaign is a donation drive that happens every November. This event encourages customers to bring in an item for our local food pantries in exchange for a special discount on a non-food, regular-priced item on our Farm Market. Traditionally, we’ve kicked this event off with our Christmas Open House—a fan-favorite affair that consists of drawings for free food, visits from Santa and more!
Dog Adoption Day
Do you love dogs? Well, then you’ll love our Dog Adoption Day—a day when we invite our local animal shelter, The A.R.K. out to show off all the dogs they have up for adoption. Whether you’re in search of a furry friend or simply want to take a look at all the playful pups, this is one event you won’t want to miss!
