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.

  • Registration Now Open

    Registration Now Open Join us in Americus, Georgia, for a gathering to celebrate Clarence Jordan’s prophetic witness by plotting how to build up a new world of peace, community, and racial justice today.

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.

We are celebrating spring and new life with 12 new calves on the farm! Luna is Elsie’s new calf and she is a fun and active new addition to our farm. The other 11 calves live out with the big herd of cows who roam through the pastures and pecan orchards. It is always a blessing to have tangible reminders of new life and growth during a beautiful spring season.

Our beautiful new Paulsen Library is all set up and ready for visitors! The library has beautiful handcrafted shelves and tables made from wood harvested from the farm and from the old dining hall. There are many comfortable places to sit and read. We still have plenty of shelves to fill and would love any new or gently used books you have to send our way. Mail them to us at 1324 GA Hwy 49 S, Americus, GA 31719 or drop them off at the farm next time you come to visit.
The plan is to renovate the Frances Warren House (our old library). We will keep you posted. A special thanks to the Scheibner and Paulsen family and for all the donations and hard work from the whole Koinonia family — friends, members, interns, neighbors and guests.

Jubilee Partners came recently for a working retreat for their community. It was great to have them at the farm. They were even greeted by a double rainbow as we all gathered for a bonfire, singing and storytelling.
