Located in Rome, Ohio, Hummingbird Farm is the passionate beginnings of AJ and Chrissy Janesko vision to build a refuge for women battling cancer and other illnesses.
“Full Story to Come” “Site Still Under Construction”
We are looking to raise $62,500 more to ensure Hummingbird Farm becomes a home of transformation and new life!
This property will begin to generate income immediately, raising chickens, growing organic produce and pasturing cattle. This Spring (2018) we look to convert 1/2 an acre to Organic Vegetables, 1 to Hops and the rest to Livestock and Honey Bees. This property will also eventually be home to our Outreach Tiny Home Village.
Both barns are in need of repair. We plan to finish the conversion of one to a Workshop/Garage this Spring (2018) and the other to our Feed and Livestock Barn by end of Fall 2018. Before winter hits we also hope to add a large hoophouse. We ask for your help funding these renovations!
This spring and summer we will look to increase our 20 chickens to 100. We will be following Joel Sallatin’s methods and keep them in a shelter like the one below. We hope you can help us out at the farm build it….look for your invite or just come!
This fall we will look to increase our 100 chickens to 1000 and in the Snow Belt of Ohio we will need a large efficient greenhouse. Like the photo below this greenhouse will be a winter home to our chickens but it will also serve the produce arm of the farm. With this structure, women who come stay with us will have the ability to still participate in our unique therapeutic program…in fact this structure will be essential to accomplish our hope!
