We appreciate all the help that we have received from from the many volunteers that have given their time to share their hearts with us on the farm. We especially would like to thanks David and Allen Rose of Nashville, NC, the Society of St. Andrew, Wester Farms, and Nash Produce.


With over 1,000 acres of farmland, there's always something to do! We've partnered with local organizations such as the Society of St. Andrew, Feeding Franklin, Innerfaith Food Shuttle, and many others to foster an enriching environment for volunteers. 


First Fruits Farm is a subsidiary of Wisdom for Life. We believe in being good stewards of the land and resources. All proceeds go towards continued education, research, and mentoring efforts in order to enrich the lives of local communities.

SOW-A-SEED Project


Sow-A-Seed Project

2 Corinthians 9 outlines the Biblical concept of sowing and reaping. It has guided our mission on First Fruits Farm and in our family. It speaks of the importance of giving and how the heart is intrinsically tied to this action. We are inspired to replicate the process of what we do here at First Fruits Farm through our Sow-A-Seed project.  Anyone who is willing to start their very own garden, will receive starter seeds.  Our request is that you sow the seeds in faith and tend to your garden. When you reap an abundant harvest, sow some of your First Fruits into someone elses life by sharing your food with neighbors who may be food insecure, a local food bank, or soup kitchen.  


2 CORINTHIANS 9:6-12                                                                                                                                             6 Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7 Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed; 9 as it is written,

“He scattered abroad, he gave to the poor,
His righteousness endures forever.”

10 Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness;11 you will be enriched in everything for all liberality, which through us is producing thanksgiving to God. 12 For the ministry of this service is not only fully supplying the needs of the saints, but is also overflowing through many thanksgivings to God.
