Our Story

A Meaningful Purpose logo horizontal 2022.png

A Meaningful Purpose was founded in 2020 to address the needs of food insecurity, soil regeneration, and community inclusiveness in Atlantic County, NJ.  This mission is carried out at the historic Reed's Farm, continuing a legacy of local food production in the region.  The farm operates organically year-round, hosts a sanctuary for farm animals, and provides educational and vocational programming to local schools and organizations with a focus on people with cognitive disabilities.  We aim to provide a community hub that inspires all who gather here to engage with nature and celebrate its healing capabilities.
