For more than two decades, David Bohn has worked as president of Preferred Utilities Manufacturing Corporation in Redding, CT. A philanthropic individual, David Bohn supports New Pond Farm, located on 102 acres in West Redding, CT, and its charity golf tournament.
Recently celebrating its 30th year, New Pond Farm consists of an environmental education center and a small working farm. Home once to founder and actress Carmen Mathews, the farm highlights a variety of habitats, including wetlands, pastures, and woodlands. During the summer, New Pond Farm offers a personal camp for urban-area kids to make friends and learn about life on a farm without any modern electronics. To help raise money to offer these camps, the nonprofit farm seeks donations and support from the public.
On September 20, 2016, New Pond Farm hosted its 13th annual golf outing. Since it began, this fundraising event has raised more than $260,000 to help it continue to offer its programs for children and adults. These programs connect people to the land so they can understand and appreciate its value.
