Welcome Parker's Pub!

Jimmy Fund Donation
Since 1983, Normandy Farms has been raising money for the Jimmy Fund, a Boston based charity that helps families with cancer. This effort was spearheaded by Doris Daniels through hosting various events and activities, which generated over $400,000 since 1983.
In recognition of our 50th year and all the hard work and creativity by Doris in developing programs to raise money including jail day, casino night and most recently skunking a site, Normandy Farms presented a check on December 16, 2021 for $50,000 to The Jimmy Fund. We look forward to continuing our partnership and raising more money for families in need.

Meet Bellini!
Bellini is an absolute dream! She is about a year old and is a playful, happy puppy. Bellini loves to play and would do best with an active family who can take her for walks, hikes and would be willing to play ball with her. She does well with other dogs and would do well with an active canine companion. Bellini needs a fenced yard since she loves to do zoomies a few times a day. Bellini is such a loving dog and whoever adopts her is going to be very lucky!
