Children benefit greatly from work experiences on the farm, and can begin building healthy work ethics while learning what farming is all about!
Kannah Creek Farm has a beautiful infrastructure for hosting events and retreats on a small scale with a sustainable and spiritual focus right outside of Grand Junction, in the beautiful farmland of western Colorado. We are committed to providing our community with educational and growth opportunities.
