At George Farms, we truly put our family and community first. With our family running the farm, we have held many community events. We farm strawberries, pumpkins, summer vegetables, sunflowers, and anything else we can get into our fields. Currently, we are organizing a Community Fun Run to help raise money to get Billy's Diabetic Alert Dog. The idea is to have the path thru the pumpkin patch to pick your own pumpkin, but remember you have to carry it to the finish! Our plan is to make this an annual run, with a different child being our main focus every year. Participants and sponsors will receive swag including t-shirts, medals, and pumpkins. Due to COVID-19, we are planning the run to include staggered start times, social distancing, and a virtual run option.

What is a Diabetic Alert Dog? For years, Diabetes Assist Dogs have been used to detect low blood sugar levels in their diabetic owners and warn them of a hypoglycemic attack. Dogs smell their world. The dogs can detect the tiniest odors about one part per trillion. This lets the dogs sniff out various forms of cancer and diabetes.
