Who we are 🏡
Abundant Grace Ranch is an Organic (not certified), Non-GMO, Non-Soy, Teaching Farm in Charlotte County, Virginia. We have many projects, including running fence lines, building enclosures, cutting wood, and clearing land. You will also experience feeding and caring for our animals. If you prefer to do less farm work we can offer some house cleaning options instead. We also work a lot with the Amish community so you will experience a new and different culture. We are a devout Christian family and can offer a spot in our car if you would like to go to Church on Sundays or Small Group on Tuesdays.
