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).
