It has been said by a much smarter person than I, that if you give a man a fish he will eat for the day; but teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime. Here at Phoenix Farms we have adopted this old Chinese proverb as our Mission Statement. Although this many seem lazy, there is simply no better way to rewrite what has already been so clearly and eloquently stated. We teach those hungry to learn, so that they may find better ways to provide for themselves, their families and others.
The proverb goes so much further for us. Our farm is a growing and teaching farm, its existence born from the need to house, feed and love children that, for whatever reason no longer have access to these most basic of human rights. Children that live on the streets bereft of family or shelter or for that matter a regular meal; the Orphans. A large percentage of our Profit goes directly to Phoenix Childrens Homes, Homes we hope to build, supply and Manage. Every child should have a chance to be a Phoenix.
