    Hi Noah, I just listened to your interview and found it very solid and biblical. I and my family live in Cullman county in Alabama and wondered where your farm is in the state. Be encouraged and keep up the good work. My wife and I have homeschooled our four children for the last 25 years. Blessings in Christ, Wendell

    Dear Noah,
    Just about to finish reading your excellent book. You’ve done a great job! I have been traveling the world, teaching missionaries about the power of homesteading, which includes food production. Your book will become a constant resource as I encourage missionaries to share the love of Christ through farming/homesteading. May I invite you to download my training manual, ABUNDACULTURE. It’s a free PDF. You’ll find lots of ideas for your consideration.

    One question that I have is, what are you going to do to follow your excellent book? Your message needs to be shouted from the mountaintops! I would like to speak with you. Perhaps I could help you in this endeavor. Please feel free to call me at 719-360-3075.

    Your servant in Christ,
    Jack Dody

    Hi Noah,
    just finished your book. i liked it.
    some of this info came to me as revelation, when i was saved.
    i really want to know what Leviticus 19:19 means, in a more practical way.
    we have mixed stuff in our garden beds…is this a God-glorifying way to farm.
    i’ve always wanted more insight into that verse.
    look forward to your response.
    Devin

  4. Noah, I just finished your book. You did an excellent job providing a vision for farming from a Biblical World View. I gave a short review for my audience of your book at http://www.thelegacypodcast.com.

    Hi Noah. For several years now my wife and I have been feeling more and more pulled to Christian homesteading but have not acted on it like we should. This desire has more intensified as of late, and I happened to come across your website this weekend. I was more than intrigued just with the similarities, including our last name, the name of our sons (I have a son named Enoch Sanders too), homeschooling, etc. It may have just been a strong coincidence, but it might have also been a confirmation from God that I need to quit thinking and planning and start doing. Thanks for putting this out there. I appreciate it, and I know others do too.

    hi noah..im from india and i hav jus finishd reading your book born again dirt…good work with your perspective of comparing farming your land with eden garden…njoyd it…
    noah im curious to know what you think about farming practises in almolonga, guatemala…almolonga claims that GOD has healed its land to provide abundant harvest… almolonga is considered to be the fullfillment of 2chronicles 7:14….i hav always believed in harvests of biblical proportions….not only in quatity of harvest but also the quality of harvest…i just needed to know an expert’s view of almolonga…

  7. Arma Ezekiel Purdy says:

    Dearest Noah, thank you for writing your book and for posting your entries. First, the Lord has been pouring out revelation on seed time and harvest with me, then He insisted I watch “Faith Like Potatoes” (just last week) with my daughters, and now I am reading Angus’ book. Abba made me so hungry for more that He placed your website before me today as fresh daily manna. After 3 years of being alone, I am praying 24/7 for a Boaz-husband who is a gentleman farmer to Glorify the Father with my daughters and I. Together we will learn from the earth, extend care to animals, and provide a harvest for the entire world. Thank you and bless you for your encouragement; there is fruit in your Heavenly account to draw from.

  8. Beata Smith says:

    Noah, your book was practical, insightful and encouraging. Thank you for making available information that connects farming to Christianity.
    Would you consider talking with a group of young Christians interested in farming? Perhaps you have a project they might be able to help out with on your farm–or just watch a demonstration? Let me know what you think. Thank you!

  9. Am glad to see your Courage to digger out from the Holy Bible in Agriculture and farming. From 1986 first started to digger out the Bible and from 2008 the Agriculture. My meaning is that the True Worship to God show the True Agriculture today….Glory to Jehovah God.

    Thanks and I hope to order your Book soon. Am living in the Urartu region where Agriculture started 6000 years ago

  10. Rick L says:

    Hey Noah.. I am still reading your book and anticipate it to continue to be a blessing to my wife and I. We are still looking to purchase land to really start our own homestead and the book only fans the flames. If you could, shoot me an email sometime. It would be a blessing to be in contact.

    Your Brother In Christ

    I was reading in Countryside Magazine about your free PDF, I don’t see anything about a download anywhere. Please email me my copy as an attachment.
    Thanks,

  12. Steve and Dona Roche says:

    Noah and Family, Thank you for your faithfulness. The current state of agriculture today is a confirmation of Galatians 6:7, “do not be deceived God cannot be mocked, a man reaps what he sows” My wife and I are 54 and 52 years old and have been called to farm. About three years ago after becoming aware of the spiritual abyss in “big ag” and the manipulation/destruction Gods creation, we prayed and asked God to use us in any way to change this according to His will. God answers prayer and the transformation and opening of doors has been breathtaking and beautiful. We have just purchased a small farm and we will growing produce for a small community that is reliant upon Large growers on industrial farms. We know we are only a small part of Gods army taking back Gods land in Jesus name but this is an honor and blessing I humbly accept to glorify His name. Your book is part of my schooling. May God bless you and your family.

      Steve and Dona,

      My wife and I are of the same age, as well as mindset and conviction as you two are in ministering through God’s provision in a homesteading/farming lifestyle.

      Though we have several obstacles to overcome to get there, we trust in God’s faithfulness to fulfill this desire in our hearts.

      Do you have any wisdom and insight that you would be willing to share with us to help us pray and move forward in practical ways to glorify Him through submission and obedience in our quest ?

      We live just outside St. Louis Missouri and really don’t have anyone to glean from.

      Thank you for your faithfulness, and God Bless you guys !

      Mark & Beth
