During our gardening class, we had a great time with the students here at Reformation Farms! We covered everything from soil development and garden layout to cultivating a proper heart attitude and making disciples through Agriculture. Praise the Lord for holding the expected rain off and giving us two beautiful days!
We finally have the date and details up for the Christian gardening course!
This training is tentatively scheduled until we reach the minimum number of participants.
Christian Gardening Course This September 25th - 26th
Come to our farm this September for a two-day, hands-on training that will help equip you to produce your own food using low-tech, simple methods that copy God's design in creation.
While the course will be catered as much as possible to the needs of the participants, the following are some of the things that may be covered/included.
Singles price - $150
Couples Price (bring a family member, spouse or friend along) - $100 per person
Lunch included in course price. Please let us know if you have any particular allergies.
If you are coming from out of town, you may stay on our farm during the course, for an additional $20. Let us know if this is the case and we will work out logistics.
If you will be staying overnight with us, additional meals for both course days can be discussed when you sign up.
The deadline for sign up is September 5th, so if you are interested in attending or have any questions please contact us using our contact page!
A few weeks ago we purchased and transported onto our farm three Yorkshire/Hampshire piglets from a local breeder! We have enjoyed getting to know these unique animals and their fun personalities. Pigs bring a whole different aspect to the farm and provide a great solution to the reduction of waste, such as food scraps the chickens won't eat, old or bolting garden produce, and much, much more! So thankful for these new creatures.
We received another shipment of 100 chicks to continue the broiler season!
Stress-free Chicken Tractors from building to operation! We are using this design in conjunction with the Pasture Poultry Pen for the first time this year and are loving it!
Say hello to mama hen and her little chick-y baby! She has 8 more hidden under her somewhere. :)
We are excited to announce a new, Greens Box CSA membership program we are making available for 2020!
WHAT IS A CSA?
CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture”. CSA programs are designed to build a relationship between the farmer and community. When you become a member of our CSA, you are essentially buying shares in the farm's output before the season starts, and then reaping the benefits of the harvest each week as the season progresses. We are cutting out the middle man and you are getting beyond-organic, local food, grown and harvested, using sustainable farming practices.
The benefits of a CSA are endless. Typically, consumers buy fruits and vegetables from the grocery store that have been shipped from all over the world, regardless of the season. By choosing wholesome, locally grown food, it is ensured that you are eating the freshest, most nutrient dense and best tasting food possible!

Each member will enjoy a weekly box of fresh greens and herbs. Members can enjoy peace of mind knowing that everything is grown beyond organically.

It's apple season!! We all love making a trip to the orchard to buy "seconds" for our different apple "delights", but let's talk about applesauce! You can transform those grainy, cooking apples into something healthy for you and your family without canning! Raw, cultured applesauce is about as easy and nutrient dense as it gets, plus it's quick to make and something adults and children will enjoy! See below for the recipe!
