Eastern Shore Organic Farms (ESOF) Inc. is a non profit veteran organization for a national cause, headquartered on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. ESOF is able to speak to a wide range of needs for youth along with issues that our veterans currently face when returning from deployment. ESOF’s mission of aiding youth and veterans is centered around three specialized programs: ESOF, Real Role Models for Youth(RRMY), and Revive Warrior.
The Real Role Model for Youth program teaches youth how to work on the farm and in return, rewards youth with fun activities. The program includes hands on activities such as farming, team building, confidence courses, and social development. These are conducted through curriculum constructed and implemented by our vetted mentors. Integrity, courage and commitment are our core values. These core values will help ensure the future of every Real Role Model for Youth attendee’s success, and that of our U. S. of A.
For active or previous servicemen and women, ESOF’s Revive Warrior program gives them a place to rest, relax, repatriate, rehabilitate, and reintegrate. In addition, ESOF also hosts special events geared toward providing activities and get-away experiences for veterans, their families and more at the farm.
Donations are needed, and contribute directly to the program’s confidence courses, farming infrastructure, educational development, multi-purpose skills tower and stations, skills track, and events such as the Eastern Shore Paradise, Fall Fest, Haunted forest, and more. ESOF does not sell produce to the public but gives this harvest to youth and others involved.
