Take a step back to yesteryear! When you enter this grand Queen Anne Victorian Estate, spend the night in blissful slumber away from the world. Greetings from the new owners; we are so excited to meet all our new guests and share in the experience of life at Gold Brook Farm. Here, we focus on good old, homemade breakfasts with quality you can taste and seasoned to delight. Much of our menu uses organic, grass-fed, and free-range practices, some of which are grown here on the farm and at nearby local establishments. We invite everyone to come and spend time with us, escape, and learn the joys of stepping back from the hustle and bustle and bombardment of technology for a true old-fashioned getaway.

Ministry Retreat

At Journey Inn Ministries, we are committed to the health and well-being of others. Our uniqueness is our focus on those already in Ministry: pastors, church leaders, and ministry retreats for both men and women. As we embark on this journey, we are confident that the Lord Jesus will bless us every step of the way. We aim to provide an unforgettable experience for your pastors and church staff.

Gold Brook Farm is a place where anyone who loves Jesus Christ and has dedicated their life in service of him can come and get the rest and relaxation they deserve.

We are looking forward to helping your pastors and leaders get the rest they need in a loving, Christian home where we put the Lord Jesus Christ above all and praise him with our music, culture, and other media. We strive for our guests to immerse themselves in an environment that genuinely wants to serve the Lord by blessing His pastors and leaders.

Gold Brook Farm will do all the work so your church leaders don’t have to. We will offer services like picking your pastors up at the airport in Buffalo, having three meals a day prepared with the most excellent attention to taste, and the blessing of mostly organic and healthy foods, homegrown whenever possible. Our rooms provide luxury comfort and relaxation during their stay; they can come out and enjoy the countryside or take a relaxing bubble bath in a vintage ball and claw bathtub. Your pastors will have the opportunity of boating, fishing, and other spring and summer outings, as well as snowmobile and riding in a horse-drawn sleigh, then coming inside to warm ourselves in front of any one of the home’s beautiful fireplaces.

Please note that we center our home around big and small animals.

We have Balinese cats (They are one of the most hypoallergenic breeds of cat. If your pastors or staff are allergic to cats, please get in touch with us about a test kit to see if they will react to the Balinese. )

We have two American Cocker Spaniels, who are very friendly and playful. Rin is our boy, and Dorothy Gale is our female.

One African Grey Parrot, his name is Obi-Wan Kenobi, and yes, he does talk a lot! He will put a whole in your clothing and possibly try to bite you, but as long as you remember a few simple rules, like don’t put your fingers in his cage or give him food without permission from one of us at Gold Brook Farm, he will be fine.

We are working on building the horse fencing, but eventually, we will bring our horses and get some new chickens, guinea fowl, ducks, sheep, and cows.

We can’t do any of this without favor from the Lord. If you are interested in helping with or donating to our Ministry, please send me an email. I would be thrilled to hear from you.

T.A.J.E

Our future is going to be bright! Journey Inn Ministries will help build a lifelong dream here at Gold Brook Farm. In addition to converting the Bed and Breakfast into a retreat for pastors, church staff, and church groups for men and women, Journey Inn Ministries is proud to announce that preparations for T.A.J.E. are underway.

 

So, What is T.A.J.E?

( Pronounced Taj )

Training Academy for Jesus & Equine

 

T.A.J.E is more than just a ministry or an educational institution. It’s a place where dedicated and passionate older teens, pre-college, and young adults can immerse themselves in a holistic education. Our goal is to deepen their knowledge of the Lord, equip them with vital skills, advance their education, and enrich their lives. We achieve this by focusing on the Arts, Music, Etiquette, Horsemanship, and the teachings of Jesus Christ. We also teach the importance of responsible daily living and animal care. T.A.J.E students are more than just learners. They are beacons of Christ’s light in a world that needs it, ready to share their faith boldly.

 

Here at T.A.J.E., we cater to students who have the drive and a desire to be in a place that encompasses them in the Holy Spirit and gives them a home where they can plan, study, and focus on their goals and dreams while at the same time learning who they are and who God wants them to be.

 

They will gain instruction in but not limited to.

 

Biblical Studies: Students focus on the word of the Lord, biblical history, and Evangelism in our modern society. They grow more profoundly in their theology and learn to make their faith active daily.

 

Horsemanship: Horses are understanding and patient. Each student will receive basic knowledge of animal care, health, and managing a feeding schedule, as well as riding both English and Western if they desire. Secondly, if a student is already a mature rider, we will help them advance to an Olympic level or any level between beginner and Olympian if that is their goal.

 

Lost Arts and Skills: Our goal is to help our students reach their highest goals in proper behavior, such as learning fine etiquette skills, cooking, music, singing, sewing, fishing, boating, archery, dancing, Business planning, financial stability and many other accomplishments that are vital to a thriving community. This will help enhance our society and increase the standards of humanity that have been in decline for decades.

 

Classic Literature: Gaining knowledge of the classical works of Charles Dickens, Jane Austin, Shakespeare, Anthony Trollope, Jules Verne, and many more. To understand the importance of speaking and reading well by enhancing their vocabulary and verbal and written communication, as well as learn how to recognize the works of masterful authors properly and gain new insight into how the written word affects society.

 

At T.A.J.E, we understand that each student is unique, with their own set of goals and dreams. That’s why we tailor our classes, studies, and activities to each individual, providing a truly personalized experience. Our aim is to enhance their relationship with our Lord Jesus and equip them with the tools they need to lead a truly enriched life.

Agriculture

Gold Brook Farm was once a thriving family business engaged in all manner of agricultural production. Like so many family farms established by settlers to the region in the 19th Century, the virtuosity, economic sustainability and diversity of farming practices changed over the years and yielded to the forces of mechanization, economies of scale, and production efficiencies. The land has remained in agricultural production since it was first developed by the Wright family in the 19th Century. We eagerly took on stewardship of the land when we purchased the property in 2016 and have been slowly and painstakingly introducing crops and farming practices that we hope will sustain the farm for many generations to come. As transplants to the agricultural scene, we manage to bumble along the learning curve leading to good agricultural practices. Perhaps our experience will offer useful case study in a few of the foibles to avoid.
