New Life Farms

We have an overall goal to develop sustainable farms at New Life to provide for our own needs as much as possible. We are developing small to medium-scale sustainable agricultural projects to train and provide for the children’s home. These pilot projects can provide examples to help the needy produce and provide for themselves.

ANIMAL HUSBANDRY

We have a variety of animal husbandry opportunities in the area. There is a animal-husbandryneighbor who owns a chicken farm that has begun donating undersized chickens for the children to raise. We thank God for His ways of providing. We are soon to begin an egg production project using “chicken tractors” (movable grazing space), chicken runs, and chicken “hotels.” We will use feed from our own corn and other products.

We are developing our pastureland and have been raising steers for meat the past year. As we grow this project we have sold two for oxen, doubling our investment, and now we have six beef calves. One of our animals we butchered here for the children’s meat. We believe that we can develop this project large enough that we can raise enough steers to butcher or sell one per month.

In addition, we are raising a few pigs and feeding them our mealtime leftovers and other organic feed. We hope to provide most or all of the pork that we eat here at the children’s home.

TILAPIA FARMING

We have begun a successful fish-farming venture in which we have raised and sold tilapia to the neighbors for cash to help cover a small portion of our overhead costs. We have prepared two more, larger, fishponds and believe that by developing a secure market we can provide all the fish protein that we can use for the children and provide a cash crop that will cover other costs.

VEGETABLES AND STAPLE CROPS

We are developing our farming into a mechanized process to produce all the corn and beans needed for the children’s home. These acres of land produce a portion of corn in the dry season with irrigation to feed the pigs and chickens. We also have an acre plus in fruit trees including mangos, tangerines, lemons and a few other varieties. In the near future, we plan to develop and plant bananas, pineapple and other fruit and crops to provide a well-balanced diet.
