4MG Farm is a veteran-owned and operated, 11-acre family farm located in Sanger, TX. In 2017, Kevin and Christina Via started their community-driven regenerative farm focusing on biodiversity and holistic methods of growing soil to produce a self-sustaining ecosystem to provide beyond-organic food and educate the public about the benefits of a pasture-raised animal operation. 4MG Farm received a $5,000 grant to convert their well to a 100% solar for irrigation, pasture and high tunnel management.
So far, they’ve purchased and installed all the lines to bring the well water to where they need it. They have also secured the solar-powered equipment and pump and are just waiting to get the old pump removed before installing the new one. They experienced some hardship after Christina was in a car accident. “While all we have left to do is pull the well and drop the new one, connect everything and install the panels, it has been a challenge to get the old 600 ft. well out due to Christina’s bodily injury. The updated project completion timeline is the end of October 2022,” said farm co-owner, Kevin Via. We wish Christina continued healing and look forward to future updates from 4MG Farm.
