Unity Barn Raisers works proactively to enhance small-town character and rural environment, while nurturing a thriving community-based economy. UBR believes that a community working together can shape its own future, and in so doing, significantly advance the quality of life of its people, both now and for generations to come.


The purpose of the UBR is to advance the quality of life of the people of our community, both current and future generations. UBR provides places, programs, and services to the people of Western Waldo County in collaboration with organizations, municipalities, businesses, and citizens to enhance our rural communities. Our focus areas include community building, wellness and wellbeing, catalyzing access to local foods, and offering community leadership through strong, informed governance.


FarmDrop proceeds in Unity will benefit UBR’s food access efforts including Veggies For All gleaning initiative, Triplet Park, Community Meals, Community Kitchen, hosting The Open Door soup kitchen, and supporting food education in partnership with the Volunteer Regional Food Pantry.
