The Farmstead Ministries

The Farmstead Ministries is a family-owned company committed to serving as many people as possible. We created The Farmstead in response to the overwhelming number of people who don't have access to basic human needs for themselves or their families. At The Farmstead, we use our gifts to create hand-crafted leather goods and apparel, then use the proceeds to meet people's needs, empower lives, and spread the Gospel.
