The purpose of Many Hearts, One Farm is to educate and inspire our team, clients and the communities that we serve. The Many Hearts, One Farm logo reminds us that no one heart is better or more important than the other because we need each one in order to make different but beautiful colors. Just like every paint color on a palette, everyone who walks through the doors of Main Stay plays an equally important part in our mission.

Women's History Month

March is Women’s History Month and includes International Women’s Day, both of these observances are times to recognize the impact women have made throughout history and in modern society. Women have been trailblazers towards gender equality in many areas in the U.S. and internationally. The equestrian community is no different and Annie Wilkins is one such trailblazer! 

In 1954, Annie Wilkins left Minot Maine with her horses, dog, and sense of adventure. After losing her remaining family member and receiving news from her doctors that she only had two years to live, Annie became determined to travel to California by horseback. Also known as Mesannie, she eventually arrived in California in 1955, but not without some twists and turns on the way.
