We are working with Eukarya Christian Academy in Stephens City, Virginia, to teach their students and faculty Farming God’s Way. This simple way of farming is a solution to the food security and poverty crisis facing agricultural communities, incorporating some of the oldest technologies on the planet designed by God.
Farming God’s Way is a holistic model of agriculture, meeting small-scale farmers where they are whilst dealing astoundingly well with the negative parameters facing them. Countless success stories abound from around the world, where farmers have implemented Farming God’s Way wholeheartedly, where lives and livelihoods have been transformed, with the evidence of food security, radically increased yields, profitability and the restoration of farmers’ self-worth.
This resource is freely available for individuals, NGOs, missions or churches to be able to use to make a difference in the lives of the communities where they have influence.
Farming God’s Way is made up of three spheres of influence: Biblical, Management and Technology, which are interwoven and applicable to agriculture and farmers.

Powder Keg Farms is proud to be the first and only model demonstration farm for Farming God’s Way in the country as of January 2024.
If you are interested in learning this method, please contact us to discuss. We are excited to teach this humble and effective type of farming that yields a bounty of nutritious, wholesome food, all from their own stewardship.
Eukarya Christian Academy is holding its first Farm to Table Benefit Dinner and Auction on February 10, 2024. Chef Loren Sloan will prepare dishes from food grown by the academy students at Powder Keg Farms as part of the menu.
