“Our Resale Shoppe provides not only for the folks who call Beverly Farm home, but for the entire area, as well, thanks to year-round donations,” said Sandy Ferris, Business Operations Director. “Women’s, men’s, and children’s clothing, shoes, books, toys, and more, are all available. Come by and browse often. We restock daily as new items arrive.”

“Our Coffee Shoppe offers an array of beverages from locally packaged coffees, to fountain soda, and some delicious baked goods from our Busy Bee Bakery, as well as some select items from Duke’s Bakery.” Sandy Ferris continued. “With our drive-thru window, it’s quick and easy to stop and get a coffee, juice, soft drink or snack and be on your way.”

About Beverly Farm

Beverly Farm was founded in 1897 by Dr. William H.C. Smith and his wife, Elizabeth to establish a caring home, socialization, proper medical care, healthy diet, physical exercise, education, recreation and meaningful work for people living with developmental disabilities. Today it is a planned community that looks and feels like a neighborhood. There are homes; a recreation center with a pool; an equestrian center; medical services; therapies, and much more. Nearly 400 individuals who live with intellectual or developmental disabilities call Beverly Farm home. We challenge and encourage them to live their best life. Beverly Farm also manages an onsite resale shoppe and coffee shoppe, and members of our local community are encouraged to visit and make use of these amenities.

The mission of Beverly Farm is to provide a loving, caring home for adults with developmental disabilities, providing each individual with physical and emotional security and a dignified quality of life, with opportunities and challenges, within each individual’s functional capabilities.
