Due to the gracious and continued support from our community, The Living Farm has grown drastically over the years. With this growth come new opportunities. We are now in need of an on-site farm manager.  To support the manager’s roles and responsibilities, it is now time to build managerial housing.  We have set aside a small area on the farm that will be an excellent space for building an energy-efficient 384 square foot “tiny house” that will serve as the manager’s quarters. Our new farm manager, Lael Langston, is a single parent of two children. This opportunity is mutually beneficial for her family, as the farm and new home will provide a wonderful environment for her and her growing children.   By having Lael and her family join our farm operations, we are able to fulfill our mission of teaching others to be self-sufficient through farming. In addition, this allows for us to grow and continue serving the community with our education, organic produce, meat, grains and hay.

In order to build the new housing quarters, we need your help! Join us as we build an on-site managerial house to continue the legacy of The Living Farm. When you sponsor a square foot you make building the energy efficient “tiny home” possible. Find out about how to sponsor a square foot and our sponsorship packages below!
