Just one visit to The Root Farm will break every connotation you have ever had about a ‘farm’. Located across 100 acres in Sauquoit, NY, this incredible non-profit creates transformative opportunities from which people can grow. With a focus on inclusion, The Root Farm is focused on learning and healing for people of all ages and abilities through the power of equine, agricultural, and recreational experiences.
We teamed up with Simon Eisenbach Productions and Green Couch Studios to tackle this project from the ground up. While our team was tapped to help The Root Farm grow through creative marketing and advertising, what we didn’t expect was how, as an organization, we ourselves would grow throughout the process.

I highly recommend FMN Creative to any business or brand looking for a digital marketing agency. FMN Creative produced content, copy, graphic design, landing pages, videos, and more for multiple different campaigns for the non-profit that I work for. Each campaign delivered incredible responses far beyond my expectations. On top of the ads, they also rebranded our look and produced a design guide along with multiple print materials for us to continue to use.
