Many people have asked me about why I chose a nest and eggs as a logo for this type of endeavor. Why didn't I go with something more Irish? Why did I choose not to incorporate the universal autism symbol of the puzzle piece? To start with, I have a strong personal connection to birds, nests, eggs and the symbolism that encompasses all of the above. Eggs represent a new chance at life; hope; the excitement of seeing the treasures that lie within those eggs. Birds represent the connection between the sky and the land; freedom; the ability to spread their wings and soar independently. For me, the nest symbolizes home; love; protection. I admire the manner in which a bird constructs her nest piece by piece, gradually making it strong and protective. And so I chose three eggs in my nest for my three beautiful children. I dedicate this farm to my three children, Jordan, Marcus & Brendan. May this farm provide a strong and protective place for those who need its support. May it allow everyone who walks through its doors to spread their wings and soar. May it provide you and your family with hope and a new chance at life. And may it provide all of us with the opportunity to discover the treasures that lie within us.
