Annual Founder's Day

Founders Day is a celebration of the coming of our saviour, Master Fard Muhammad, on Friday July 4th 1930. He came to find and save the lost sheep, which are the 40 million black people of North America, and set them on the path of righteousness and independence. We also celebrate the re-acquisition of our 1,556 acre farm made possible by The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and The Nation of Islam which is part of a larger 4,500 acres originally purchased by The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad.

Members of the Ministry of Agriculture and supporters from cities across the country come to Muhammad Farms in Bronwood Georgia and enjoy numerous activities throughout the weekend. Last year’s celebration included a buying club and commodities workshop, apprentice program, Growing Power training, survival preparedness, vegetable picking, canning, down-home fish fry and several children’s activities. Tours included a tour of the farm, places where the Honorable Elijah Muhammad worked and lived in Georgia and a Reverse Underground Railroad Tour (houses and land).

Suggestions for Visiting Muhammad Farms

Founder’s Day – July 6-8, 2018

  1. Wear cool, loose, comfortable clothing.  (Exposing your skin to the heat of the sun by wearing shorts and no sleeves does not cool the body.  7 days prior to your visit eliminate sodas, sugary drinks and drastically cut down on sweets.  This will reduce your attraction to gnats and other insects along with give you more stamina to handle the heat.)
  1. For outside farm work, hats, work gloves and sun glasses are recommended.
  2. Being away from home is no excuse to disrespect our discipline. Only those under the age of 16 are allowed to eat 2 meals per day (How to Eat to Live, Book 2, page 31)   Fruit will be provided for mid-day snacking, as well as pure well water and bottled water.
  1. Bring what you need for your baby and any special dietary needs.
