Service to Others—Sustainable Farming

Sustainable Farming

The first supermarket supposedly appeared on the American landscape in 1946. That is not very long ago. Until then, where was all the food? Dear folks, the food was in homes, gardens, local fields, and forests. It was near kitchens, near tables, near bedsides. It was in the pantry, the cellar, the backyard.  –Joel Salatin

We are committed to feeding the hungry physically and spiritually. Some day we hope to grow all our own food feeding not only those who live and visit here, but regularly share the surplus with those in need. Food is something we have been able to share, but as our numbers grow and the harvest increases, it is our plan to continue to share in bigger and broader way.

We take stewardship of the earth seriously. As stewards, our work is to protect the environment—the land, the air, the water, the plants, the animals, the people—all of God’s good creation. We work to grow healthy food in healthy soil. We use no pesticides, herbicides or fungicides. We grow vegetables, blueberries and grapes. Our cattle are grass fed and our chickens and pigs are pasture raised. We are in the midst of a major experiment to grow our pecans using biological methods. The focus is to infuse the soil with life using compost tea among other amendments and to use beneficial insects to help fight the pests that attack the trees. Koinonia hopes to be a “demonstration plot” for growing pecans without harmful chemicals. Pecan farming is a major industry in Georgia. If our experiment works, it will do much to protect the environment and to improve the health of the soil, plants, animals and people. Koinonia is proud to be working on this experiment with Betsy Ross and Sustainable Growth Texas. Read about the accomplishments of this company here and come visit Koinonia and see the work being done at the farm.
