About Little Way Farm and Homestead
Little Way Farm and Homestead is operated by Mathew and Carissa Winters. In July of 2022, Mathew and Carissa, along with their children, moved from Cincinnati, Ohio to Southeastern Indiana – somewhere between Lawrenceburg and Madison. It had become a passion and desire to locate a place where a Farm and Homestead could be developed in order to develop skills honed by generations past and to provide a steadfast place of love and support for their children’s growth.

The Catholic Faith
Little Way Farm and Homestead was established as a Farm on the Feast of St. Michael the Archangel in 2022.
The name, “Little Way Farm and Homestead” is a nod to St. Therese of Lisieux, who is commonly associated with the phrase, “The Little Way.” Also known as “The Little Flower,” the manner in which St. Therese lived her life at service to God, is of great importance and significance to the Winters Family. St. Therese’s manner of loving God, submitting herself to His Will and humbly recognizing that all activities, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, can give honor and praise to God when properly ordered.

Specifically, that the Farm produce the type of food that calls to mind the goodness of God and that the Homestead operate as a source of inspiration and steadfastness being hospitable and encouraging to all in the pursuit of Heaven.
