The Farm

We built a farm to provide employment and the sense of dignity that comes from earning a living and being able to take care of one’s family.

The Community

In Nicaragua’s poor economy, there are many opportunities to help average people in the community. Here are some of the things we’ve been able to do.

Sheep Dreamzzz

We train women to knit adorable baby blankets that we sell in the US.  They keep all of the profit from their work. Truly a gift that gives back!

Updates – August 2019

  • After some significant downtime, our well pump seems to be functioning reliably. Its main shaft had broken, so we tried out a cheaper 120V Truper pump; a mistake but not too costly. Bismarck took great initiative getting the older 240V pump fixed and the guys reinstalled it all on their own.
  • We finally have all the components for solar system #2, except for the panels, which are readily available. All will be installed in early October and we’ll see if we can pull the plug from the high-priced public grid.
  • The group of seniors who come for breakfast every Thursday morning has grown to about 25.
  • Sheep Dreamzzz keeps turning out more blankets, and the women still own 100% of the profit. We released a new website with reviews, product filtering, and many other nice features.
  • Sheep Not Goats helped several workers who needed financial assistance to deal with medical issues
  • One worker, Luis, left the farm. We needed to downsize a little anyway so the reduction in payroll helps us. It was his decision though.
