Our Community

Who We Are

We are creative, kind, and wise beings here to explore, learn and grow together holistically in nature.

Dreams take root here!

From a desire to homeschool, be closer to nature, and grow organic food to a vision that helps others connect to their sacred souls, this property has been a blessing to everyone involved.

Vision & manifestation

Lohra Ballinger

Owner & Operator

I graduated from Purdue University in 1999 with academic honors and continued my education at Florida Gulf Coast University Masters Program in Education. I started this farm because I wanted my son to have access to alternative education that would nurture his spirit in a loving, natural environment. With the support and guidance of my community, this farm has come to life.
