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
What is normal? Certainly not this violence against one another. Please, God, no. Please let this not be our “normal.” We must not grow weary of doing good. We must not be silent. We must fight to create a better world. A safer world. For everyone.
All of the things we do here in our orchards aim to create a healthy soil, leading to a healthy ecosystem, and a healthy crop. It’s just one more way we can demonstrate a better way of caring for and working with nature, and letting nature do the same for us.
No doubt, Easter is to be a momentous occasion for Christians — it is our greatest feast day. But it seems its beauty is heightened all the more by living that week — from Palm Sunday to Easter Morning. I wish everyone of you could experience this week with us. That not being practical, perhaps give some thought to experiencing it with us from afar? Together let’s give ourselves to the full range of emotions of that week.
