In 2017, we announced a campaign to raise $400,000 to purchase land in central Virginia for the Wild + Free Farm Village. By December 31, we raised $392,800 and have started pursuing land for acquisition in central Virginia.
We're looking near the Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah National Park, and the Appalachian Trail. This idyllic setting has beautiful sprawling fields, forested foothills, bold creeks, and majestic mountain views.
In the vein of Young Life’s wilderness camps and L'Abri in Switzerland, we envision a place where Wild + Free can equip families for this all-important journey of homeschooling and nourish the hearts of all who come.
This is a place where homeschooling mothers can come together for weekend retreats and much-needed getaways; where teens can spread their wings with some time away; where children can learn and care for nature; and where families can make lasting memories with new friends.
We can't wait to see this vision come to life and experience it together.

This is a long-term project, which we plan to accomplish in three phases:
If you feel led to be a part of this next phase of bringing the Farm Village to life, all donations to our 501(c)(3) non-profit, Historytellers Productions, will be used for just this purpose. You can email us to learn more.
