Eagles in Flight Organic Agricultural (EIFOA), was founded by Bishop Edward C. Brown in 2007, with a vision to feed our nation and world.
Eagles in Flight Organic Agricultural believe that everyone has a right to eat a more nutritious diet and live a healthier life. Years ago our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents lived off the land. The land was pure and not corrupted; they labored hard and long and used whatever methods and farming techniques they could to make the harvest. They had their share of good and bad days, yet they persevered for their families and neighbors. Organic farming is another way of combining the farming of yesterday, with modern technology of today.
Statistics show that poverty plays an instrumental role worldwide. EIFOA is a company that will be partnering with other companies and entities to help reduce poverty worldwide. Thirty-five percent of all seedling plants that we produce will be donated to local communities; all information and instruction needed on how to maintain organic garden will be provided.
Bishop Brown’s slogan is, “we must feed the nations”. For over three years he has prayed to God to help the people catch the vision. We will partner with those that wish to take the journey with us, by making the vision a reality.
Eagles in Flight Agricultural Company—EIF—growers of organic food products—is the brainchild of founder, Bishop E. C. Brown and Ginger Brown. The concept was manifested through a vision God gave him in 2007, while visiting the Shawnee Indian Reservation in southern Louisiana, in the United States.
Taking stock of his roots—where and how he was brought up, looking at the fertile soil beneath his feet and observing hungry children around him—he was overcome with compassion and resolve to find a practical solution to the hunger problem. This epiphany led him to put an action plan in place with one thought resonating constantly in his mind — with so much land and expertise available, why are there so many hungry people everywhere?
The bishop being so overwhelmed and the Spirit of God moving mightily upon his heart to do something more meaningful about fulfilling dire needs of people, he became engaged from concept to reality, convicted that feeding, clothing and sheltering people anywhere is of paramount importance and necessary global ministry.
Charged with the idea of creating an entity large enough to grow —not just food—but a wide variety of organic foods and products—fruits and vegetables—to feed the world, struck a chord in his psyche. Hence, the purchase of the organic farm in Apopka, Florida—the birthplace of EIF is only the beginning.
To solve many of an organization’s growing challenges, Bishop Brown developed research partnerships with several universities, including the University of Connecticut, which has the largest organic college in the United States. Other colleges and universities assisting in his organic food vision are the University of Louisiana, University of Georgia, Georgia State and Florida State University.
