Helping Hand Rewards’ newest partner is Chicago-based Lambs Farm, a non-profit organization helping over 260 people with developmental disabilities. Through employment opportunities, these individuals learn valuable vocational skills that can be transferred to other jobs in nearby communities, helping them create more sustainable lives for themselves.

What started as a small pet shop has grown into a sprawling campus. Located in Libertyville, Illinois (a Chicago suburb) they’ve grown their outreach to a country-style restaurant, a petting zoo, a country store and an amazing bakery. With these different business functions all out at their farm, Lambs Farm has been able to help, teach and even house hundreds of mentally disabled individuals have a more normal working life.

Social outreach isn’t all that Lambs Farm brings to the table. Their assortment of baked goods is absolutely out of this world! Famous for their “Butter Cookies,” they also provide toffee and turtleletts. In our Holiday Card assortment this year, we’ll be featuring their “Chocolate Lovers Collection” – three pounds of a lavish chocolate variety including an array of  buttery English toffee, dark, milk and white Lambs Farm logo chocolates, dipped fruit, enrobed sandwich
cookies, dark chocolate nut bark, turtles, nut clusters and coconut patties.
