“Serve Local. Reach Global.”

 

Camp Glory Farm is a ministry of Siloam Missionary Homes.  Our motto is:  “Serve Local. Reach Global.”   We raise Dorper Sheep, Nigerian Dwarf and Pygmy Goats, Ducks, Chickens, and Alpacas.  Lambs and kids are available to purchase throughout the year.  We also sell our own lamb meat which is raised mainly on grass, hormone free, and with rotational grazing methods.  Meat is processed through a USDA approved facility and available for purchase at our farm.  We now have two locations: Camp Glory Farm@Siloam Homes and Camp Glory Farm@Watson’s Place.

It is our desire to use Camp Glory Farm for two different purposes.  Our location at Siloam Homes is primarily for residents living on campus to learn, heal, and grow together as families.  The location at Watson’s Place is for community education, interaction, and application.  This location offers educational opportunities to learn in a “hands-on” approach as well as challenging each one to serve not only within their own community (Serve Local) but also to serve others globally (Reach Global).

 

 

Two Locations

Camp Glory Farm @ Siloam Homes

 

The primary purpose of this location is to allow third culture kids (TCKs)/Missionary Kids (MKs) a safe place in which they can adjust from overseas living into the American culture through the interaction of our animals.  Due to the fast-changing pace in our country today, there can be various hardships that these families face when they return to the USA. The animals are therapeutic for these families and help aid in the adjustment process.  Families have the opportunity to learn how to care for these animals, build or maintain the community garden, or just enjoy God’s creation.


Camp Glory Farm @ Watson's Place

 

Camp Glory Farm @ Watson’s Place is a beautiful 10 acre farm dedicated to education, interaction, and application.  Our Motto, “Serve Local. Reach Global.is about taking what has been learned locally and using it to serve others globally.  Our goal at Watson’s Place is to provide opportunities for students and adults alike to come and learn about caring for Dorper Sheep, Nigerian Dwarf and Pygmy Goats, and Alpacas.  As this farm develops, we plan to increase areas of learning and training to topics such as:  “Using Aquaponics and Hydroponics for raising fruits and vegetables, pasture management, lambing and kidding, and much more.”

Please call or email to schedule an educational field trip, tour, or with any questions you may have.

Farm Manager       

Kendric Peoples began as a summer intern in 2017.  As the summer ended, she felt the Lord leading her to remain a while longer.  After serving as in intern for 2 1/2 years, Kendric felt this was the place the Lord had for her to serve Him.  Her dedication and hard work showed her passion to be a part of Camp Glory Farm and so she was brought on staff in January 2020.  She helps daily with animal care, farm needs, leading and training interns, and helps the Director with any tasks needed.  She is an excellent baker and often makes amazing cakes to share or sell.
