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!

The father went on directing his remarks to Lilian, “You aren’t one of us. Why would my children play with you?”
Lilian looked at the grown man. She could see kindness in his eyes even though his tone and words did not match it. She said to him, “Aren’t we are all God’s children, sir? That makes us one family … doesn’t it, sir?”
There are few things I find more meditative than laboring in the vineyard. I love pruning and harvesting and, of course, eating muscadines and scuppernongs
