א Aleph Homestead Farm.
Goats? Chickens? Ducks? Oh My! Our sincerest hope is to set a positive example. We want to show people that this CAN be done by "normal" (non-farming) folks. That you can have livestock. You can have fresh eggs and your own CY milk. There are endless Torah topics that can be learned and taught around farming. When we stop being afraid, and open up to the possibility and the responsibility, there is tremendous potential.
We sincerely believe that such a lifestyle has the ability to bring one closer to the Aibeshter. There is a rhythm of life that we lose sight of in the city. Days pass differently. On the farm and in the garden, we see the full life cycle of living things. Doing all we can, we are keenly aware of the obvious, that it's all in Hashem's hands.
Aleph represents the first. One. But it is so much more. Aleph represents Hashem. Aleph is the only thing that is missing from Galus. We know that Galus, when an Aleph is added, becomes Geulah. It's a change in perspective. Each and every one of us can bring more kindness and light into the world and at any moment we can tip the scales to usher in Geulah. With these teachings in our hearts and minds, may it be immediately. BezH
