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.

Winter 2017

The work in the pecan orchards is year round and is always latest news. This picture shows Keith and his helper Judah with the tractor and spraying equipment. With these tools, we spray a special recipe designed to accelerate the decomposition of the biomass left over from the leaf fall. The focus is to return nutrients to the soil. We use no insecticides, pesticides, fungicides or herbicides, but rather focus on increasing the life within the soil, leaves and trees. See how green the grass is and it is wintertime!

Koinonia Turns 75!
As part of the celebration of Koinonia’s 75th Birthday, we want to find 75,000 people willing to donate at least one commemorative brick to be used to build a walkway and a prayer garden. Read more about this project and order your brick today.
