Farm Life Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit educational organization located at NaVera Farms in Callahan Florida. It was established to originally serve as a local and regional destination for children and adults who want to learn and at times remember what is important for independent farming and living responsibly. Animal management supports the farming programs and serves as "Prevention education" for all who visit. Most animals on this farm have either been rescued or adopted and remind all humans that ownership mandates financial responsibility, daily obligations and life-time care.
Farm Life Foundation now supports and guides many new and existing farmers and students. Our goal is to "Return to who we once were" states team members.
On-site classes and workshops include "true" and natural farming methods without the use of any chemicals or pesticides. This day to day learning is focused on the value of living an organic and natural lifestyle which benefits both the human and animal species.
Our Foundation serves as a role model of natural respect and maintenance for all living entities.
One of our philosophies of education is based on the premise that each person finds identity, meaning, and purpose in life through connections to the community, to the natural world, and to humanitarian values such as compassion and peace.
NaVera Farms serves as the location for Farm Life Foundation and is defined as a working farm which cares for its animals, guests, students and the land and supplies all living entities with a safe and healthy environment. Our rescued and adopted animals serve as our greatest teachers.
