The vision of First Fruits Homestead is to further Christ’s kingdom by developing a community through our most basic needs; food and fellowship. The farm seeks to nurture a lifestyle that sustains emotional, physical, spiritual and financial well-being.
The mission set before us is to provide our community with safe and nutritious fruits, vegetables & meat while striving to bring people closer to Christ while working the land He has provided. We will continually develop a nature-sustaining lifestyle which utilizes modern techniques, pre-industrial ecological principles, and encourage healthy relationships between people, their food supply, and the land from which it grows. We will promote local agriculture, food access through farming operations, educational programs, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and ministry through giving.
This ministry seeks to build up, educate, and give back to our local community. In a time when most people do not know their own neighbors, let alone where their food comes from, we want food to become a source of unity. The sustainability of the farm’s growing practices, combined with the ministry to share the produce with others, and our desire to build Christ-centered community is the focus of the farm’s growth.
“Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. ”
