Artwork at the Dismas Family Farm


With the winter season in full swing at the Dismas Family Farm, residents are exploring their artistic sides. In the past, the wood shop produced excellent items such as the Adirondack chairs, birdhouses, bathouses, and Christmas ornaments.

Another constructs hanging plant holders made of wooden polyominoes as well as an art deco style clock.
