“And he hath brought us into this place, and hath given us this land, even a land that floweth with milk and honey.” Deuternomy 26:9
Grandpa and grandma often share of their growing up years & how farming was not just a livelihood but a way of life. They knew the importance of working hard to raise quality food. Their family depended on it. The Lord was in control of the weather & making the seeds grow while each member of the family had to take responsibility to fulfill their role on the farm. They learned character and they learned to work together.
Hearing their stories helped to instill in us a love for life in the country: their joys of caring for baby chicks or piglets, watching out for the rooster while milking the cow, storing up food for the winter without electricity, making soap over a fire, being so excited about oranges at Christmas, having homemade ice cream for the 4th of July without freezers, working together as a family and with extended family.
We are grateful for the heritage our grandparents have given to us. Just before we officially commenced Honey Brook Farms in the fall of 2011, our whole family had the privilege of accompanying Grandpa and Grandma back to where their lives began in North Dakota. We walked the fields together, heard the stories of yesteryear, and so developed a greater passion to carry on the same values, character, and passion of Grandpa & Grandma to this generation and the ones to come.
Our family grew up in the suburbs enjoying working together as a team on our 1/3 acre lot. When Dad laid out a proposal for commencing a family farm, every one was on board. We knew there would be much to learn and many mistakes to make :-), but we saw this more than just a way to make a living, it was a calling that has become a way of life.
Our goal since Honey Brook Farms began in 2011, has been to be “A Family Farm for this Generation and the Ones to Come.” We want to work together.
Growing up, our family did not understand how compromised the food supply was becoming in America. The Bible says there is a way that seems right unto a man but the end thereof are the ways of death. We see how this principle also applies to so many of the conventional farming methods used in America. Farming methods that seem right but are resulting in the death of pasture, animals, and people.
We want to improve farming practices and improve the farmland instead of draining it of all it’s nutrients.
As our family came to understand how nutritionally deficient, chemically full, & genetically modified the mainstream food supply has become, our family is grateful to provide our community with sustainably grown products using organic & holistic methods as stewards of God’s beautiful Creation.
Using what we’ve learned about producing top quality products to both teach and supply food for our community, has become a passion and joy of our team.
