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
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 Community
Koinonia, a Greek New Testament word, means “communion,” “community” or “fellowship.” Like the first Christians, we worship, work, study, serve, live and eat together.
A Place of Farming Sustainably
Koinonia is committed to growing healthy food in healthy soil. We work to care for the earth using practices that are non-toxic.
Come and See!
Come to Koinonia Farm for a visit and see for yourself. We'd love to have you!
Welcome to Koinonia Farm!
And welcome to our new website. We continue to transfer content from our old site so come back often to explore — we're almost 75 years old so there is much to transfer!
Explore our site and plan a visit to our community. We are a house of hospitality and we would love to welcome you to the farm.
Well over a 100 people joined us at the farm on Saturday, February 25 to celebrate the life of former intern Andrew Reese Thornburgh. Andrew passed away unexpectedly in January. The afternoon and evening were filled with laughter, tears, stories and songs. After sharing memories in our chapel and watching videos of Andrew singing, we all enjoyed a potluck meal in the dining hall. The Pluck Tones, one of Andrew’s favorite bands, played afterwards. Various musicians gathered back in the chapel for a late night jam session.
Koinonia is accepting donations to help the family with funeral expenses. If you would like to contribute, you may do so online.
This is a drawing that former intern Tracy Newton did of Andrew. Thank you, Tracy, for gifting us with this. Andrew, we miss you.
Soon it will be June and blueberry picking time at Koinonia Farm. We’re working in the orchard getting ready for U-Pick. If you’re local, watch for information as the time drawers nearer. If you are further afield, but want to visit during the blueberry harvest, please visit our Ways to Visit page to find out more about reserving a stay at the farm.
Koinonia will soon be on the road. Coming up in March 27-30 we will be at Habitat for Humanity International’s Global Conference in Atlanta. Find out more about the conference on their Facebook page.
We will travel to Connecticut in April to present a workshop entitled “Drinking from the Well: Offering a Koinonia Welcome” at the American Baptist Churches of Connecticut’s Annual Gathering. Read about ABCCONN on their website.
We would love to speak at your church, university or conference. If interested, please contact us at email@example.com.
