I've lived here all my life..some great things and people still live here..a lot has changed since I was a kid, some good and some bad. I would love to see some locally owned business as well as new businesses here in Farrell. Most importantly I would like to see a variety of activities for our youth put in place! Not a bad place to raise a family but definitely in need of more things in our community!

I love the people and the sense of unity it brings to the community. The thing that I would like to see change in, is having better educational programs and curriculum for the youth throughout the year.
Farrell is a close not community. It may be small but the residence here are very warm and welcoming. My over all experience living in Farrell is that it is a great place to grow up. It's very convient since all your friends, family, and stores are close by. I wouldn't have wanted to grow up in a different place. Growing Farrell made me who I am today.
