Our Father’s Farm

 OurFathersFarmOur Father’s Farm


At Our Father’s Farm, we first strive to raise faithful, responsible and mature young people, who will be useful for their master’s service.   After being in Africa for 7 years we saw that the farm was a great place to do this.  Our Father’s Farm animals are raised naturally, on lush grass pasture ensuring the healthiest, best tasting food around.  We subscribe to natural old time farming techniques that cultures have used for generations around the world.  We don’t use hormones, animal by-products, synthetic chemicals, or antibiotics.   All of our products at Our Father’s Farm are hormone and antibiotic and chemical free.  We raise the animals naturally, giving them an environment which allows them to live the way they were created to live and grow.  Please drop in and visit us.
