St. Johns Lutheran Mission Farm

St. Johns Lutheran Mission Farm

What We Do:

We grow fresh fruits and vegetables for distribution through the CANV Food Bank to help families struggling financially put delicious and nutritious meals on their tables. While there has always been a need for this in our county, it has become especially critical during the current COVID-19 crisis.

We farm three acres of land on which we have 70 fruit trees and land for both summer and winter row crops, while allowing for sound soil management. During each of the past five years we have delivered to the CANV Food Bank between 12,000 and 15,000 lbs. of fresh produce for distribution to families in the county. We are an all-volunteer organization which means all your donations go directly to producing food for people’s tables.

Other Ways to Help:

Volunteer opportunities:

  • Help with planting and harvesting (on call basis for “work parties” if unable to come out regularly)
  • Raise starter plants at home to give us a jump start when weather warms

Donations needed:

  • Gift cards for Walmart, Home Depot
  • Prepaid cards from credit card companies such as Visa and Mastercard


The Mission Farm is a dozen active, motivated, knowledgeable individuals Their weekly commitments help supply the CANV Pantry. Joining them as volunteers, we have learned a lot about raising crops and ourselves.
