OUR MISSION

Our mission is to establish a safe, healthy, family-oriented culture of self-reliance through community Farm-steading. We are helping those who wants to learn and to become self-reliant by stepping away from a lifestyle of dependencies into a safe, healthy culture with like-minded neighbors. Our intent is to build a foundation of knowledge, skill, and wisdom, coupled with integrity, love, and appreciation for all of God’s creations.

***

We are committed to creating centers of learning, where we teach the next generation how to teach and be self-reliant, building safe family-friendly communities in a world of uncertainty.

Many see this as an adventure for their families and an opportunity to raise their kids on pesticide-free food, breathing clean air, and drinking chemical-free water. They also see it as a chance to create a self-sufficient lifestyle where they fill all their own food, water, power and sanitation needs, without being dependent on city supplies for those life-sustaining needs.

OUR END GOAL IS TO HELP FAMILIES

to remain debt free while building:

Energy Efficient Homes

Barns

Greenhouses

Gardens & Orchards

Water Supplies

Alternative Energy Sources

Sanitation Systems

The Academy has partnered with OSR Green, LLC to assist families in a co-operative enterprise to purchase land for the development of a self-reliant and interdependent community in 5 locations. The first is currently being built in Utah. The others to follow will be in Arizona, Wyoming, Idaho, and one near Cardston, Canada. For more information regarding Operation Self-Reliance go to

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A

HOMESTEAD & A FARM-STEAD?

The Homesteader and Farm-Steader have a lot in common: They both live at the location of their production; they both have an eye toward the needs of the family (which means an emphasis on diversity); they are both DIYers in a big way. The core difference is that Farm-Steaders run their homestead like a business.
