Chard Farm has long been a financial supporter of Southland Hospice, which holds a very personal place in our story. We are very proud to have raised over $100,000 for the cause.
When Rob's father, Des Hay, passed away in 2015, the local Hospice played a significant role in his end-of-life care. It was surprising for us to learn that such vital community support isn't totally government-funded. We decided to fundraise and initiated a practice: for every visitor to our Cellar Door who opts not to purchase a bottle of wine, we kindly request a donation to support the hospice. The response has been amazing and often our customers purchase wine and donate as well!
