"The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today." ~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr. ~
We are a family who works together to achieve sustainability in all areas, from our efforts in rare breed conservation of Guernsey goats, Jacob sheep, Highland cattle and Kunekune pigs, to herbalism, permaculture, adult education and homeschooling.
We're looking for a farm helper/apprentice in Ft. Payne, AL! Please call or text us at 256.333.0504 if you think you may be interested in helping out and learning a few things, too! The ideal person would value this opportunity for more than "extra cash," and have a real interest in holistic animal husbandry and sustainable agriculture.
We are building a village! For over two years we have been making preparations to move the homestead to Lookout Mountain, AL, and build a village of like-minded followers of The Way. Our goal is to be a community-focused safe haven, where you gain as much as you give. We all have many skills to share, even if we aren't aware of those skills yet. With an attitude of "many hands make light work," we will be able to share in the work and reward of homestead life and sustainability while being surrounded by others walking the narrow path. Do I have to live in the village to be a part of the village? NO! Our village currently consists of several families who actually live within 30 minutes of Higher Ground. We are doing our best to follow the Father's instructions and are open to communal living at some point, if that is His will. If you're interested in learning more, please contact us!
