NATIVITY

CHURCH FUNCTIONS

What better way to discuss God’s natural influence in our lives than on a farm? Want it at the church; we can bring the farm to you!
With today’s deterioration of the family it is refreshing to have a clean, wholesome place the whole family can visit. Void of electronics, gadgets and fancy do-dads as a distraction. A farm visit is a place the church family can spend FUN, QUALITY time together. Ask us about our live Nativity TO CELEBRATE THE REAL MEANING OF CHRISTMAS

Community Building

image88

Veterans and their families, and the community, who volunteer on the farm, find it easer to interact with like-minded people. Often times, working on the farm feeding and caring for the animals or gardening becomes a family affair.The joy of simply having the animals around has authentic healing power

Bee Keeping

image89

We continually discover new things about nature, bees, and their remarkable social behavior. Working with bees is so calming and almost magical. You feel at one with nature, and whatever problems may have been on your mind tend to evaporate. There’s something about being out there on a lovely warm day, the intense focus of exploring the wonders of the hive, and hearing that gentle hum of contented bees — it instantly puts you at ease, melting away whatever day-to-day stresses that you might find creeping into your life

Cut Flowers

image90

Flower planting, harvesting, and arranging can be a very enjoyable activity. Even the darkest of spirits brighten at the sight of a well-arranged bouquet of flowers. The more you enjoy it, the better you will get at flower arranging. Take home a bunch from the farm. 

Farmers Market

image91

Wouldn’t you rather stroll amidst outdoor stalls of fresh produce on a sunny day than roll your cart around a grocery store with artificial lights and piped in music? Coming to the farmers market makes shopping a pleasure rather than a chore. It is a wonderful opportunity to savor the biodiversity of our planet.The farmers market is a community hub—a place to meet up with your friends, bring your children, or just get a taste of small-town life

U- Pick Garden

image92

Enjoy the experience of summer in the country and pick your own delicious, healthy fruits and vegetables for you and your family. Our season begins with the beautiful blooming plants and flowers being pollinated by our own honeybees living on our farm and ends with bright fall pumpkins. 

Homesteading

image93

We are lucky to be stewards of a wonderful 25-acre farm. The practice of homestead farming with horses and maintaining the knowledge of how to use horse drawn equipment is the most special feeling. We do it simply because we love it and the simplicity of just seeing guests relax and enjoy the peace is priceless.  We grow hope at the farm!
