In Unity We Can Accomplish An
ything Including Owning Our Own Farms


"Look at what we’ve already done with The Nation’sEconomic Program in the South of Georgia onMuhammad’s Farms; it’s small, but it’s a beginning: 

We bought back 1,600 acres of our farm in Georgia in 1991, and became the largest Black-owned and operated farm in South Georgia.  We transformed worn-out, weed-infested, hard-rock clay land into arable land andworkable soil—and brought back many of the birds and wildlife! 

We purchased over $250,000 worth of farm equipment and trucks:  We have our own flour mill and commercial sifter, where we can produce 800 pounds of flour in an 8-hour day. 

We produce “the best-tasting watermelons in the country”—so we are told!  On a yearly basis, we produce 8,000 pounds of flour, 400,000 pounds of watermelon, 12,000 pounds of different vegetables, 100,000 pounds of wheat, 100,000 pounds of field corn, and 200,000 pounds of peanuts. 

We deliver produce to eight states; and whole wheat flour and other goods to 35 cities. 
We also have provided jobs in the area… 

That is what our farm managers, Dr. Ridgely Mu’min Muhammad and his wife, Sister Anne, are doing on just 1,600 acres of land!
***
Now, we also have a little farm in Michigan; and even in the midst of the worst drought in years, we had our greatest yield of navy beans since we’ve been planting beans since 1985!  That is Godsaying to us:  “I am with you!  Even though others don’t get rain, watch:  You will survive! I will heal your land…”
