The Promise Farm at Ararat
In Memory of our founder, Stuart W Epperson Sr.
Ararat is where he was born, raised and where his body will be put to rest. He wanted this to be a place of rest and restoration to those who need it. Thank you for visiting this website and learning about the legacy that meant the most to him.
Grow Closer to God. Rest, and Restore.
Grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
To Him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
2 Peter 3:18
