About Us

How We Got Started

Dirt ‘N’ Nails Farms Inc. began as a vision. Spring 2009, Monte Pescador, was working in a community garden in Adams County, Colorado. Most volunteers were like him, trying to help fill food banks.

“What would it take to motivate people to grow their own food?” he asked himself. Education came to mind. Materials to grow vegetables.

“Suddenly I was looking down from the ceiling of a greenhouse, and all around was busy with people loading up seedlings, pots, and bags of soil into a truck, the truck headed for a local food bank to teach people how to grow food indoors. Outside the greenhouse, more people worked on a small farm, picking weeds and harvesting vegetables. All of these people were homeless families living on the farm. When I told the volunteer next to me about what I saw, she just shrugged and said, “Sounds like you’re suppose to build it.” I got home and told my wife and she said the same thing.”

Our Mission

To become servants of Christ (Matthew 20:28, Mark 16:20); to feed the physically and spiritually hungry (Psalm 37:25, John 6:35); to shelter, clothe, and attend to the lost and suffering (John 21:15-17); and to spread the Gospel to all whom we touch along the way (Matthew 28:19-20).

We strive to break the cycle of homelessness in families by providing education and counseling in self-sufficiency and sustainability, whether in shelters, food banks, or meal centers throughout a metro area or via a future planned series of farms.    Part of recovering from homelessness is recovering from whatever trauma brought the family to homelessness and recovering from the homelessness itself.  A homeless family can be new to being homeless or could be a second, third, or even fourth generation in a cycle of homelessness.  This is why we focus specifically on the needs of homeless families and struggling low-income families trying to keep their homes.
