About Heritage Farms

Updated July 2016

Mark & I (Kate) were married in September of 2013. It was always a dream of ours to have acreage of our own, to raise future children, our dogs (of course!) & all sorts of different animals, all for the glory of God! You can read more of Our Story here.

This dream became reality in June 2015. With the help of Kate's Grandparents, we purchased a small Farm located in Pike County MO, not too far from either of our families.

Cozily situated in the beautiful rolling, grassy Farmland of northern Missouri, we are loacted about 2 hours north of St Louis & Lambert airport. We have 3 acres of land & a 115 year old Farmhouse (which we LOVE restoring & rennovating!). Right now we are still in the "beautifying/ restoration" phase, as we just recently purchased this property. I (Kate) will finally be able to have my white picket fence & Knockout rose bushes! :)

Our goal is to live off the land as much as possible by planting a big garden, having a large orchard, possibly putting in a small pond, raising our own chickens, eggs, pigs etc.

We currently have some barn cats, lots of chickens, two horses, a miniature horse, a llama, some Guineas & a bottle calf.

Check back often & look at the photos below, as we continue to make the most of this land the Lord has given us! Please let us know if you have any questions or if we can serve you in any way!

Why the Name "Heritage Farms"?

According to Webster's 1828 Dictionary, heritage is defined thusly:

HER'ITAGE, n.

1. Inheritance; an estate that passes from an ancestor to an heir by
descent or course of law; that which is inherited. In Scot's law, it sometimes
signifies immovable estate, in distinction from movable.

2. In Scripture, the saints or people of God are called his
heritage, as being claimed by him, and the objects of his special care. 1 Pet.5.


Our godly heritage, Providential history, background & roots are very important to us- as individuals, a family & a nation. We could not be who we are today, without our heritage. We are standing on our forefathers' shoulders! We truly are a blessed nation!!!

Our parents have passed onto us the importance of a multi-generational family Vision, where the extended family lives close to each other, works together & grows together. There are many benefits to this concept! We plan to homeschool our children & leave a godly legacy of many Ritters who seek after the Lord for many generations to come.
