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 Community

    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

    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.

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.

Come Visit  

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

Koinonia Farm on the Road

Koinonia’s main off-the-farm spokespersons head out again in November. Amanda Moore travels to the Habitat for Humanity Ohio Conference and the Habitat for Humanity Indiana Conference. Bren Dubay visits Boston College, Boston University and Brandeis University. If you are in the area, let them hear from you here. Perhaps they can stop by for a visit or you can visit them. We are always happy to see friends of Koinonia as we travel.
