About us

We are a Christian family who are passionate about animals and blessing children with the opportunity to learn to care for and interact with animals. For several years now, I have watched children visit our farm, and enjoyed their reactions to the opportunity to interact with various animals, and nature as a whole. The children loved caring for the animals and digging their hands into the garden. I realized I had an opportunity to serve my greater community by providing farm living experiences to children by offering a Farm Camp from our home. 

Our farm raises miniature jerseys, peacocks, chickens, turkeys, guinea hens, sheep, horses, cats, dogs, rabbits, miniature goats, donkeys, alpacas and pigs. Now our farm is expanding to include programs for children and youth to learn farming activities while also learning to see everyday blessings and the goodness of God, and His creation. Our goal is to provide positive farm life experiences to ground children with the knowledge and skills to become more self reliant and capable of living in rural settings, and providing for themselves and their future families. Not only will this benefit the children, but generations to come as they will be encouraged to maintain rural living. Some of these learning activities that we would want to be able to provide are home economics, animal husbandry, fishing, ziplining, berry picking, chick hatching, bottle feeding calves, honey collecting, and faith-based lessons with campfire devotions each night.

What Others Have to Say

"We put all 4 of our kids in two BFJ camp days and our kids are still wearing their t-shirts and are still talking about it almost a year later! They learned so much about the farm animals, Jesus, and making rockets! Their day was filled right up with activities and it was well worth the wait to get them there! Great atmosphere and great fun!"



We all have the ultimate responsibility to protect the health of animals under our care, and so have a  biosecurity plan for our farm. Quick and simple measures built into our everyday management practices will go a long way toward protecting our farm and our future from the costly consequences of disease. Prevention is the most cost-effective protection against animal disease. Biosecurity requires a whole-farm approach to animal health management. The cooperation of visitors and agri-service personnel is an important part of our plan.

An effective biosecurity plan can help to accomplish the following:

  • improve or maintain animal health, welfare and productivity;

  • reduce the risk of the introduction and spread of endemic and foreign diseases;

  • minimize potential losses;

  • protect human health.

We thank you for your cooperation.
