We are getting closer to launching and details are coming together. Please send prayers so that we can take this to the next level and get these doors open as soon as possible.
Our plan is to prepare several yummy Take & Bake options that can be ordered in multiples and delivered.
And to have a Hot Farm Style Meal prepared and ready (order ahead) to take home to your family. I believe we were uniquely being prepared for this and we have a strong foundation already in place.
Because of our diversity, we will thrive through the changes ahead. But also because of our unique diversity we have had some challenges finding an insurance company that can cover us. Thank you for taking moment to send a prayer that the details continue to come together the way they are supposed to in God's perfect timing.

Farm Style Family Meals To Go

We believe that your time is your most valuable asset. How you spend it is important, especially when it comes to family. We know that as a mom you are expected to do it all, and then some...every single day. When it comes to meals for your family let us help you make it easier on the nights when you’re helping kids with homework. Or maybe you are trying to make sure that your parents or grandparents have something that will make it easy for them too. Family caregivers are stretched to the max when it comes to trying to keep the family organized and managed. We can help make part of your life just a bit easier.

The best part is you are also helping women to find their new normal after being victims of Human Trafficking. Proceeds from Our Dinners & More program, and other Farm activities and events, go to support educational programs about Human Trafficking Awareness, Prevention, and the development of Recovery Programs. We also proudly collaborate with Dorothy’s House, a Non-Profit recovery home in central Iowa.
