Since 1942, people from all backgrounds have been visiting Koinonia (pronounced Coy No Knee Uh) and since the 1950s we've been shipping products through our mail order business, which today includes pecans, chocolate, and much more. Learn about our history, our community life and work today, and how you can get involved by visiting, interning, or donating!
Welcome to Koinonia Farm!
Since our founding in 1942, we have welcomed and shared with anyone and everyone regardless of race, religion, no religion, background or anything else that divides people. We are an Intentional Christian community with a rich history — from the Jordans and the Englands founding the farm, to the bullets, bombs, and boycotts of the mid century, to launching the Partnership Housing Movement that became Habitat for Humanity, and the birthing of many, many other projects. Explore our site and plan a visit — we are a house of hospitality with plenty of guest rooms. We would love to welcome you to the farm!
Some of What We Do
Meet the Members of the Community
Lamenting is an important part of our faith, even if it isn’t a part of our U.S. culture. Jesus lamented. The Psalms lament. We even have a whole book in the Hebrew Scripture named Lamentations. When we don’t grieve, we don’t heal.
Here is a collection of reviews, articles, podcasts, and other resources about “The Inconvenient Gospel” book and Clarence Jordan himself.
