Mary Beth Drobish, Founder
The Barn at Spring Brook Farm is Mary Beth’s dream come true. Her passion for both children and animals led her to develop the organization and create the vision. Mary Beth lives on the adjoining property and has dedicated years of her life to seeing that children with disabilities have a place to experience the unconditional love of animals.

Chris oversees all aspects of barn management, property management, and animal care. He assists with children and animals in all four of our programs and is a Camp Geronimo favorite, bringing campers and counselors to The Barn each morning in the hay wagon pulled by the tractor.
