Who We Are
From our Farm to your Home
My husband and I have started an Autism-friendly family farm/homestead.
Special needs parents need to start preparing and planning their child’s future as soon as possible. All parents worry about their child’s future and how they can prepare their child for the day they will be on their own. For parents of a child with special needs, the concern is much greater. Who will take care of my child? Will he be able to care for himself? Could we help him learn to care for himself? Will he be happy? Will he lead a productive life? Our son, Ayden, is the center of our whole; we waited 11 years for this miracle baby. He was recently diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD); he is almost entirely non-verbal. It has been a fantastic journey. Our new goal is to start a farm and for Ayden to have the best opportunity to succeed in life.
Little Fire Farm
Ayden means “Little Fire.” We not only want to start the farm for him but are naming it after him as well.
Why a Farm?
The therapeutic benefits of life and work on a farm have been studied and documented for years. Along with its safer, quieter environment and many opportunities for exercise, a farm gives individuals with Autism a chance to do meaningful, purposeful work, which creates a sense of accomplishment. Additionally, farm work can easily be tailored to an individual’s interests and abilities. Our farm was founded for our 'little fire' he helps at every opportunity that he gets.
There are many reasons why farms and homesteads are becoming popular options for special needs families, including:
The lifestyle is slower-paced and more relaxing, making it easier for individuals with special needs to adapt to their surroundings.
On a farm or homestead, there are several vocational activities and skills that individuals can learn.
A farm can offer a perfect opportunity to create a sustainable business for individuals with special needs by selling their produce in the local markets, raising animals, create items and becoming a member of the local agricultural community.

We will expand our production of natural products, such as shampoo, conditioner, and lotion bars. As we grow as a business and farm, we will keep updating our website and expanding our products! We want to grow this business and lifestyle for our son! He has a blast helping in every way that he can.
