34 acres on the high bluffs of the Missouri river. Beautiful meadows and woodlands with rolling hills, deep valleys, and a natural spring. Family owned for the past 13 years the land has been used as a hay field with no herbicides, pesticides, and minimal additives like nitrogen. The rest of the land has grown naturally and wild, untouched. Spring 2013 Kevin, Brookie-Lee, and their children started stewarding the land. Step by step using natural practices to create an equally beneficial farm for plants, animals, and compost. In Summer 2014 Cullen started helping steward the farm with Cindy and their little boys tagging along to play with all the animals. We are blessed to be working together to further God’s great work.
