The weather sure added to the MAYhem this week!  We did, however, persevere and accomplish a lot!  The orchard in the front is beginning to produce fruit, more blackberries were harvested, and Family2Family boxes were filled!  We ended with a short devotional and lunch, as always!

…and the MAYhem continues!

We picked blackberries and brought them, with some herbs, to the Acton Market!  We also did some area beautification and filled Family2Family boxes!  The weather was great and we had an awesome turnout! #Project44 #BeTheChurch

MAYhem on the Farm!

What a productive day on the farm!  The crosses are up!  The chicks are growing!  And the kale is trimmed!  Also, the apple orchard is mulched and the CDs are hung (to scare the birds away from the blackberries!!)  Join us all month for MAYhem on the Farm!

(Digging in the) Earth Day!

We got the last of the lettuce harvested (video on the Facebook page), sported the new hood ornament, filled Family 2 Family boxes, and planted some cabbage!  Josh conducted a garlic experiment in a hay bale too!  It was a chilly Earth Day on the farm, but that didn’t stop the progress!

Greenhouse Overhaul – Phase 2

April 15, 2017 was a busy day for everyone!  Part 2 of the greenhouse overhaul included complete removal of the cooling wall.  The plastic is all off now, with the hydroponic tanks next on the renovation agenda!  The blackberries are just about ready for harvest and we filled Family 2 Family boxes!

From Project-44 to your family, have a Happy Easter, and we hope to see you soon!

The Roof is Off!

The volunteers marched on during the Saturday work and worship on April 1st.  Unfortunately, it is no joke that our roof was torn off during the storms last weekend!  You can see the evidence in the picture above.  Fortunately, we are close to our goal to replace it, and plan to install it (with your help!) on April 8th!  Go to the ‘Donate’ link to help our efforts, or come out on the 8th to help with the installation!

It was a windy start to our day on March 25th, but things tamed off quickly and we were able to get a lot accomplished!  Lettuce harvested, Family2Family boxes loaded, blackberries mulched, and several rows of cabbage planted!  Oh, and the chicks are ready for holding and petting (Remember to use the hand sanitizer!)  We look forward to seeing you next week!

March 18th saw several new faces on the farm!  We love to see new people, because it means that the word is getting out about Project-44!  We had a short devotional, packed some boxes, mulched, tilled, fed the baby chicks, and harvested some lettuce before sharing lunch together!  See the video on our YouTube channel: March 18th on the Farm

We had another great turnout of volunteers as our 44 Days of Lent continued on the Farm!  We are truly blessed to have such a dedicated group of supporters!  We harvested lettuce, finished the lattice for the blackberries, and prepared Field #2 for tilling later this week.  We filled our Family 2 Family boxes for both the Rancho Brazos Community Center and the Hood County Wet Veterans.  The children played on the playground and in the treehouse and we finished the day with lunch and a devotional.  It was a beautiful day inside and out! #Project44 #BeTheChurch
