North Louisiana Farm Tour, Thursday, March 7, 8:30 am – 4:00 pm
The combined visions of husband and wife team Tom & Lorrie Faber, our journey began in 1986 when we were given an issue of Mother Earth News Magazine for a pickle recipe. The desire for simpler living and sustainability began at that point. In 2002, we turned our homesteading passion into a small business. Fast forward to 2019 where we live on our newly purchased 14-acre homestead just south of Ruston, Louisiana. We are a small farm dedicated to sharing our passion for farm fresh food, delicious vegetables, handcrafted products, and sustainability. Our main focus is on value-added products that we create for the enjoyment of our customers. Our products include gourmet goat milk fudge, handcrafted goat milk soaps, hand-poured soy wax candles, and specialty baked goods. We love to promote locally grown and produced products. We open our farm up for school field trips to help educate children about the importance of sustainability and local agriculture.
