What is Sweetwater Farms? 

At Sweetwater Farms, we don’t grow corn, squash, or beans instead we grow a type of nurturing for the soul. Here you will explore nature, engage with remarkable animals, enjoy physical activity and wellness, discover more about who you are and what you love, and embrace your natural instincts to extend love and kindness to others. That…is Sweetwater Farms!
