The CAFT Family

We think of ourselves as one big family here at CAFT! Now, our actual family is much bigger and includes lovely people from all over; from groups and children that visit us, event attendees, to challengers, local and national businesses and our amazing Patrons and President! That said, here’s the family down on the farm.
