Abraham’s Table Farm -- What's Our Name Mean?

Updated: May 14, 2021

The name comes from the Bible in Genesis 18 where Abraham and his wife Sarah offer generous hospitality (their “table”) to strangers – unknown travelers who they met on their journey. This story captures what we hope our farming will do: working hard, caring for the people around us, and inviting strangers to join us on our journey.

And yet, Abraham and Sarah also discovered that their simple efforts where having a more significant impact than they realized. Unbeknownst to them, their guests were more important than they realized. In their case, they entertained angels without knowing it.

Our take-away is this: if we do our simple tasks regularly, as we open our home and invite others to join us, as we share the fruits of our labor with those we meet, these simple acts of kindness, respect and generosity could have greater significance than we ever anticipated.

It is a daily challenge. We always seem to be looking at an endless to-do list. But we gather at the beginning each day for a simple prayer, asking God to help us to use our gifts and strength – and make it useful for His bigger purpose.

We might be doing something as grungy as spreading 1,000 buckets of compost. But in that faithfulness, we know we are preparing the garden soil for a much greater task. We know that seeds planted there will produce food which may feed an orphaned child or needy widow. It might be providing nutritious and chemical-free food that helps restore the health and body of those who are suffering.

That’s really what we are doing at Abraham’s Table Farm. But we can’t do this by ourselves. We need help. So if you want to participate in our vision, and support what we are doing, please become a CSA member. Or, if you are able, you might want to donate a share (above and beyond your own) so that you can enjoy good and wholesome food, and help others as well.

Please contact us if you wish to discuss ways you can help.
