Heph’zibah and Beulah:

Tikkun Olam is a Hebraic phrase that translates, Repair of the world. The term carries with it the declaration that, in mankind, there exists a responsibility, a privilege, and a right toward the reparation of the world. Tikkun Olam is passed down to us by our progenitors and we honor it as a most sacred gift.
For the Renegade Farmers, Heph’zibah and Beulah Farms is the conduit by which we live the legacy of tikkun olam.

Cultivating wild harvests
to grow Earth’s best tasting foods!
As Renegade Farmers, the work of our hands is to promote nutrient-rich biodiverse soils capable of producing nutrient-rich wild harvests that in like succession continue to impart to its consumers those regenerative qualities that prove resilient to the natural and sometimes even the unnatural fluctuations of every day living.
Cultivating healthier and more sustainable communities in Florida and beyond!
The Renegade Farmers cultivate multi-generational community learning through transformative farm tours and educational engagements. We seek to develop chavruta (inquisitive fellowship), thought-leadership, and capability-building by exploring the ethical and cultural legacies that build a platform of sustainability in the individual, in the family, in the community, in the state, and in the world.

Fecundity of the soil depends on the work of its organisms. Tilling and any disturbances of the organism’s home is kept to a minimum. The Renegade Farmers comprehend that the organism’s work, as it is virtually unseen, is varied and beyond full comprehension and thereby we honor their mysteries and delight in the results.
Seeds are scattered throughout the land and allowed to grow at will amongst wild vegetation, and, yes, amongst weeds. The Renegade Farmers assist with water and footprint access.
Livestock partake and contribute much as they would in nature: foraging and grazing on cultivated wild harvests throughout the land; scattering their manure as fertilizer for the soil organisms; and, interacting amongst themselves and with wild creatures. The Renegade Farmers husband their movement throughout the farmland to encourage soil fertility and to maintain vegetative growth throughout.
