reinsParkmont Farm was purchased by Raymond Chauvin in 1985 and was operated for four years as a working dairy farm. In 2009, after contemplating what to do with the property, Raymond and his wife Carolyn decided to begin renovations to the old barn with hopes of opening the facility to the public.

Part of their of their objective was to have a rustic, Vermont style wedding and event site. Their other vision was inspired by an organization in Bend, Oregon named Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch which offers a caring, enriching environment for at-risk youth and horses.

Feeling a strong sense of stewardship coupled with a desire to share the farm with the community Hope Grows Community Farm Program was born. The program is based around horses, gardens, faith-based values and various mentoring opportunities.

All profits from the rental of Parkmont Farm for weddings and events go directly to fund Hope Grows.
