Pecan Orchard
  • A Place of Peace

    A Place of Peace We work to create an environment and a rhythm of life conducive to prayer and contemplation. We dedicate our lives to non-violence, and to the pursuit of peace and reconciliation of all people.

  • A Place of Service

    A Place of Service Service is born out of our life together. Service takes place on and off the farm often in the many small ways we help each other and others. Guests often join us in our work and service.

  • A Place of Fair Trade

    A Place of Fair Trade When you buy our Fair Trade Chocolate, Coffee, Tea, or Olive Oil, you can be sure the farmers who grew the ingredients are being paid a fair wage and are able to support their families. Fair Trade is good for you and good for those who produce your food.

Welcome to Koinonia Farm!

Since 1942, we have welcomed and shared with anyone and everyone regardless of race or anything else that divides people. We have a rich history, from the Jordans and the Englands founding the farm, to the bullets, bombs, and boycotts of the mid century, to the founding of Habitat for Humanity, and other ministries. Our present focus is love through service to others, joy through generous hospitality, and peace through reconciliation. Explore our site and plan to visit — we are a house of hospitality with plenty guest rooms. We would love to welcome you to the farm

Come Visit  

“Offering welcome is basic to Christian identity and character,” writes scholar Christine Pohl. Koinonia has been extending hospitality to all since 1942.
