Happy Thanksgiving & Merry Christmas!
Dear friends of the farm,
It is that time of the year, once again, to be mindful of our many blessings, and to thank the Lord for His many benefits.  We are thankful for friends, for family, and for community that celebrates the birth, life, and resurrection of our dear Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  We are thankful for so many families that support this ministry through prayer, dedication, volunteering, generous gifts, and friendship. 
As we close out another year of service to The Great Shepherd, let us embrace the new pastures that He sends us to in the coming year. May His provision be evident in each of your lives.
