Shipley Energy helps the Horn Farm Center After Devastating Fire

On October 25th, 2021, lightning struck the Horn Farm Center for Agricultural Education’s historic farmhouse, destroying the 2nd and 3rd floors. The noteworthy landmark of the 186-acre property acted as office space for meetings and planning sessions for Horn Farm Centers’ employees and volunteers.

As the organization begins the process of rebuilding the beloved 150-year old farmhouse, the York community has come together to help, donating and volunteering whenever possible. The Shipley Energy HVAC team was proud to join the efforts, donating time and equipment to install a heat pump system into Horn Farm Center’s summer kitchen. Historically a seasonal building, the summer kitchen now serves as one of two heated spaces on the property for year-round use and will provide a warm (and air-conditioned) refuge for Horn Farm Center staff and volunteers during the rebuild.

As proud members of the community, Shipley Energy is thankful for the opportunity to lend a helping hand to the Horn Farm Center for Agricultural Education’s recovery efforts. If you are interested in donating to their restoration efforts, click here.

The Horn Farm Center for Agricultural Education has been a cornerstone of the York community for nearly two decades. In 2004, the Horn Farm Center was established as a nonprofit corporation to save the historic land from industrial development. Now, Horn Farm is a community center focused on environmental education and preservation through regenerative farming practices.
