As part of Farm To Feet’s commitment to community, we name our sock styles after cities that we touch. That is why we are proud to name one of our Snow Sport socks after the New Hampshire town of Franconia – home of Turtle Ridge Foundation (TRF). In support of the foundation, Farm To Feet provides a portion of the sales of the Franconia ski sock to the TRF. The Franconia is offered in styles for men, women, & kids.
In 2005, Olympic Medalist and World Cup Champion Bode Miller and his family established the Turtle Ridge Foundation. The foundation seeks to provide a voice to people and organizations that empower individuals to solve difficult environmental protection issues and to offer the opportunity for the disabled community and young people to participate in a variety of sports and recreational activities that would otherwise not be available to them.
Farm to Feet will feature TRF Executive Director Kayla Miller (Bode’s sister) and TRF director of development Cameron Shaw-Doran on the Franconia’s packaging along with information on TRF. Shaw, a lifelong friend of Miller’s, was left paralyzed from the chest down following a car accident in 1997. An aspiring skier before the accident, Shaw hasn’t let his injury hold him back from participating in various sports and competitions including the National Ski Championships for Disabled Athletes. Shaw advocates for disabled athletes, and recently designed the new TRF MonoSki for adaptive skiers with Miller.
In addition to our support of TRF, Farm to Feet also provides socks for various TRF events including the annual end of season BodeFest ski event and the mid summer BodeBash golf and tennis tournament.
