Feeding the Families Program
What is Feeding the families?
Committed to providing families in need with fresh, local and organic food, Happy Heart Farm owners, Dennis and Bailey Stenson, started Feeding the Families in 2009. In the program’s first year, we raised enough funds to feed six families. In 2010,we created a non profit Friends of Happy Heart Farm and raised over $12,000 to feed 20 families. In 2011 FHHF raised over $12,000 to feed 25 families. In 2012, 29 families were fed(10 of these families were victims of the High Park fire). In 2013, over 30 families will be fed.

My three children and I have been extremely blessed this season, not only to feast on locally grown organic food when the cupboards were bare, but to be a part of something larger: a community of hardworking, dedicated people who care for the earth and other.

Our Partner - Cindy Gerk
American Family Insurance emphasizes the importance of protecting the dreams of our customers. And we know our customers have lots of dreams to protect: cars, boats, motorcycles, homes, farms, ranches, businesses, and more. We protect their lives and the lives of those they love.
And there is no better way to cover those dreams than with our Umbrella Policy. Things happen every day where a potential liability could far exceed the normal limits of an auto or home policy. Our customers need to know we have a policy that will protect them when unexpected events happen. This includes car accidents with multiple injuries or injuries to guests in their homes. Your dream is out there. Go get it. We will protect it.
As your American Family Insurance Agent, I believe there's more to insurance than the policy itself. It's about providing dependable, comprehensive protection and outstanding customer service. That's why earning your trust is my policy. These qualities are the reason I have been honored with JD Power’s
Distinguished Agency Award since 2009.
