Sand Creek Farm is for Sale!
Many people ask why we are selling Sand Creek Farm. The answer is simple … God called us here to do some work for Him, now He is sending us somewhere else. This is a lovely part of His world, it is very peaceful and many people have come here to rejuvenate and learn. We have managed the land as we believed we were called to do, organically – sustainably, and now we will prayerfully pass it on to someone that will continue to care for it, while blessing others and raising their family.
While we are here we will continue to grow in the commercial aquaponic facilities, teach aquaponics as well as sustainable/organic faming for the aquaponics/greenhouses/fields, help people appropriately mechanize their farms, design farm plans, council on business plans, teach about raw milk dairies, provide farming equipment from our Sustainable Farm Supply business, and rent our personal cottages via airbnb.
Ben Godfrey, consults on many aspects of Organic and Sustainable Farming. He offers private consultation for profitable sustainable farming, small farm mechanization and aquaponic facilities with custom recommendations in labor, equipment, location, product, budget, work flow, and design. He can help you utilizie the USDA new farmer loans and the NRCS equip programs for grants.

Sand Creek Farm was the 1st raw Cow Milk dairy in the history of Texas, beginning with our license in 2004. We closed our dairy to public production in Aug. of 2016 and no longer offer raw milk for sale. However, we are happy to share with you the pros/cons of a raw milk dairy, and the profitable way to run a raw milk dairy if it is a jouney on which you are led to embark.
Or, if you believe that having your own home milk cow is the direction you would like to go, we will also happily teach you to have success in this venture as well.

We became Farmers to provide healthy foods for our family and to empower you and the next generation to do the same. We wanted foods free of chemicals, free of antibiotics, free of hormones, free of GMO’s, free of soy, and full of nutrients, so we bought a farm, moved out of the city and started growing and producing our own food.
After 2 years of “hobby” farming on 40 acres we moved to our current farm of 169 acres in 2006.In 2009 we sold our commerical construction company of 15 years, our “real job” in the city, and became full time farmers. We have now been farming for ~13 years and feed, mentor, and teach others to do the same.
Having made the journey from “City Folks” to “Country Folks” – if we can do it, anyone can do it! If you need help, we can teach you what we have learned. email Ben Godfrey for private, custom consultation.
