About Us

Hobby Farmers of America - Sweetwater strives to be an effective and sustainable organization focused on educating the public on the “how and why” to buy local or better yet, grow their own food as a community now and for generations to come.
HFA fulfills these objectives through four main goals:

  1. Encourage the citizens to buy local meats and produce from local farmers and to open themselves to gardening and raising animals for consumption on their own property.
  2. Promote the interest of hobby farming by supporting everyone from children to senior citizens in the way of building projects on rural farms and backyard/urban farms, dealing with sick and injured animals, how to handle predators, and above all fellowship with other folks in the community who share the same ideas, goals, and interests.
  3. Protect the hobby farming, self-sufficiency movement through opposing legislation that would potentially hinder our right to do so, as well as supporting legislation that would allow us the opportunity to expand our homegrown livelihood.
  4. Advance the practice of hobby farming by hosting guest speakers and sponsoring educational classes on various topics that will increase the knowledge of attendees.
Hobby Farmers of America - Sweetwater is proud to part of the national Hobby Farmers of America network. If you'd like to learn more about Hobby Farmers of America, please go to Hobby Farmers of America
