The purpose of Many Hearts, One Farm is to educate and inspire our team, clients and the communities that we serve. The Many Hearts, One Farm logo reminds us that no one heart is better or more important than the other because we need each one in order to make different but beautiful colors. Just like every paint color on a palette, everyone who walks through the doors of Main Stay plays an equally important part in our mission.


Winter Trivia!

Winter Trivia 2023

With the shorter daylight and colder temperatures, the winter months can be a time when we feel less inclined to connect with people and instead stay home and hibernate. For this reason, many cultures around the world have celebrations during the winter months to remind us that there’s still light, love and warmth all around us. These celebrations give us hope and remind us that the cold weather and shorter days are only temporary.


There are so many wonderful traditions, but you can learn about a few of them in the Winter Trivia quiz using the link below:

Wishing you warmth and light however you celebrate from everyone at Main Stay! 

Learn about the Norwegian Fjord

If you’re looking for a horse suited for snow and cold, you can do no better than the Norwegian Fjord! The breed is one of the oldest in the world, going back at least 4,000 years, and even served as war horses for Vikings. These horses are known for their steadfast and easy-going nature. Kay, an adaptive riding horse at Main Stay, is a great example of the breed and is greatly loved at the farm for those same qualities! You can learn more about this unique breed through the following link: FEI: Discover the Norwegian Fjord
