“We believe that in anything – friendships, time, effort, work – we should always give our best.”

 

It’s common that when giving things to charity, we give things that we’ve already used and we don’t need or want anymore. But when we buy ourselves things, we often don’t hold back on the best. We want to do that same for others. First fruits is about giving your best.

We believe that in anything – friendships, time, effort, work – we should always give our best.

This way of life sometimes means we have to prioritize how we spend our money and how we spend our time. We sometimes have to give things up in order to make room for the things that matter the most to us.

What matters most to us is helping to change futures for economically disadvantaged youth. We do that globally and locally.

Valliwide Organic Farm was established in 2010, and from the beginning, our purpose has been to grow so that we can give. 

Before we ever dreamed of owning a farm, we had personally invested our own time and money into helping children through a charity that is very dear to us, When I Grow Up. We saw such great need, and wanted to find a way to do more. Our organic farm business has become that way for us.

When I Grow Up is a non-profit organization that reaches children around the globe, who were born into devastation, disease, and extreme poverty. It partners with local organizations led by reliable and effective indigenous leaders who use the resources we provide to change futures of children.

It’s called When I Grow Up because it’s mission is to give children hope, and the ability to dream about what their future might hold. Their purpose is to give them life and enable them to grow up and fulfill their dreams.
