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.

We have a fully-functioning farm, selling pasture-raised meat and produce (primarily garlic and other specialty crops for retail and wholesale purchase). We are also an agritourism site – offering immersion experiences for farming and homesteading, hosting classes, workshops and conferences to help teach people the traditional skills of homesteading, farming and generally agriculture and trades. 

In August of 2023, we launched the Little Way Farm and Homestead Podcast. This podcast focuses on small-scale farming, homesteading and the Catholic Faith. You can listen to it on our Podcast Page.

Little Way Farm and Homestead

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. 

 

It is our hope at Little Way Farm and Homestead, should God allow it, that this Farm and Homestead be a place of great joy and inspiration to others. 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. 

 St. Therese of Lisieux, pray for us. 
 

The Farm

 

The Farm at Little Way Farm and Homestead produces pasture-raised meat and heirloom produce. We sell direct-to-consumer and to wholesale purchasers. 

Are you looking for nutritious and delicious meat and produce for your family? We can help! Our lineup of pasture-raised meat currently includes pasture-raised whole chicken and soon grass-fed and grass-finished beef (Autumn, 2023). We are also beginning preparations to offer Pasture-Raised Pork, Turkey and Lamb in 2024. 

The Farm employs agricultural practices that strive to steward healthy ecology that may be referred to as “regenerative.” We believe there is mutual benefit between the development of forage, the rearing of animals and design of an ecosystem that supports itself. 

Our produce is grown without the use of synthetic chemicals and with consideration for the time of year. We grow produce that is both nutritious and delicious.

The Homestead

The Homestead at Little Way Farm and Homestead is dedicated to the promotion, education and inspiration of the family rooted in God’s Love. 

In many ways, it may come to better be known that the Homestead at Little Way Farm and Homestead is a Catholic Homestead. We strive to develop educational value that is rooted in love for God and one’s neighbor. Creating a place where culture can be rooted in a manner that gives honor to God and properly orders oneself to a joyous disposition – exemplifying a witness of charity. 

The Homestead is where much of the support for the farm occurs. From the inclusion of Farm-Fresh foods into delicious and nutritious meals, to the spirited hospitality of welcoming customers, friends and family, the Homestead strives to be a place of inspiration. 

It is also at the Homestead where the farm-strategy and direction is often considered. The Homestead, while also being our family’s actual homestead, is oriented towards being a place where welcoming and teaching can be balanced. While visits to Little Way Farm and Homestead are typically reserved to tours of the farm, the conversations between friends, family and customers often happen in and around the Homestead. 

After the Farm opening, it became more obvious to us that there is a growing need and demand amongst Catholics to learn about homesteading. This awareness, amongst other realizations, has led us to quickly work to develop the Farm, and Homestead, as a place of teaching.
