The Manna Mission is a new ministry thats primary aim is to consolidate high quality goods and produce from local farmers, ranchers, homesteads and other businesses for the purpose of providing it to people who wouldn't typically have the means or access to nutrient dense, fresh food. Consequently, when you buy a box of these locally-sourced, high-quality items you are supporting the local agricultural and food community as well as those in need. Can we help someone you know stock their fridge? Can the farm be a fun day trip for underprivileged kids? Or maybe even a summer work program for teens? We’re looking for opportunities to help.
With a smörgåsbord of cattle breeds; miniature Hereford/Charolais, Charolais mix, Beefmaster, Beefmaster/Angus and Holstein, we have a good variety of cattle for meat, cattle for dairy and cattle for cuteness.
We chose St. Croix Hair Sheep for their parasite resistance, maternal aptitude, flavorful (and lack of gaminess) meat and their sweet faces.
American Guinea Hog’s are one of the oldest heritage pig breeds. They are small, gentle, hardy, flavorful and hilarious.
Our most abundant animal type on the farm, we have layer chickens, meat chickens, turkeys, guineas and quail. We have three different active programs when it comes to the birds: bold colored egg layers, large heritage Jersey Giant meat birds and heritage Bourbon Red Turkeys. We maintain our flocks with two simple standards: first, we choose the highest quality breeds and birds and second, we choose for the best temperament.
There is one word for why we keep horses on the farm: Canon. Our son was practically born with boots and a cowboy hat. At seven years old he raised $500 all by himself for his horse Star and continues to research, ride and love all things horse related.
FarmHer Brandi has been an exotic animal researcher and lover from a very young age so we typically have some strange, not-so-farm animal on hand most of the time. Prairie Dog P.D. “Petey” is a family favorite and our rescued, rehabilitated and “released” gray squirrel Goey is regularly sighted on the farm (usually sitting on Farmer Brian’s shoulders while he’s doing daily tasks).
