Simple Times Farm

Welcome to Simple Times Farm

A HOME FOR HEARTS serving Geneseee, Oakland, Shiawassee, Lapeer and the surrounding communities


Simple Times Farm is a non profit 501(c) 3 organization and strives to be a sustainable farm and equine center that exists to train up young men and women to worship the Creator through living responsible, adventurous, and creative lives in his service. We are located south of Flint and currently our clientelle come to us from Flint, Grand Blanc, Swartz Creek, Goodrich, Fenton, Holly, Linden and the surrounding communities. We are so honored to serve with each of you!!

Every month sees new growth and new friends here at Simple Times. Come enjoy our indoor arena with great footing, trails in the good months as well as a 80x200 outdoor arena and indoor bathrooms :) We do offer limited pasture boarding as well. Come check us out!! Our family and kid friendly atmosphere is loved by all. We offer lessons in Western and English disciplines, ground work and under saddle training as well as breaking out your new horse. Our property provides a great chance for the community to interact with Simple Times as well as the children and youth who come for our day camps, 4H clubs, birthday parties and other farm experiences.

The animals and businesses that are part of the life of the farm provide arenas of training for youth in essential character and skills. Each young person that we encounter is a relationship we hope to treasure and develop for a lifetime.

CHAMPS/4H - an interactive Day Camp and farm immersion experience for children ages 7 - 18 introduces them to the values and skills of farm life in a fun and lively atmosphere. Whether they are grooming a horse, learning to ride, working in the gardens, or simply exploring creation, children learn about the God who loves them and are encouraged to let that love mold them into purposeful, useable, and talented individuals. Join our 4H Club in order to grow in character and horse skills and to have the opportunity through the spring and summer months to show what you are learning at the fairgrounds in a fun for the whole family adventure!

Birthday parties - Parties at the farm are available for children ages 4-14.  Kids enjoy riding and enjoy being with our horse friends!  Come on down for some great farm fun instead of doing what we have already done many times...roller skating, laser tag or bowling for your birthday party. Your child will remember this party for a lifetime!! Call or email for more information and to reserve your party.

Issachar Learning Center - At the heart of our vision is Issachar - a home and life-skills training center for youth. A place where they can become part of a family and grow to be virtuous leaders with the skills to be effective people and courageous contributors to their culture!
