About us

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.

We are Christians called to live together in intentional community sharing a life of prayer, work, study, service and fellowship. We seek to embody peacemaking, sustainability, and radical sharing. While honoring people of all backgrounds and faiths, we strive to demonstrate the way of Jesus as an alternative to materialism, militarism and racism.

      Great Hosts!

    Koinonia Farms was a gracious host for our groups. They were very kind and helpful to all of the members of our team. They assisted us with emergency lodging.

      BEST Lunch at Koinonia

    Thank you Koinonia family for hosting Habitat for Humanity International's Black Employee Success Team's Inaugural event. It meant so much for us to reconnect with our spiritual roots. Your hospitality and open arms made "coming home" easy. Oh, and the food was fantastic!! Dawn Daniels McNear

      Konoinia is an inspiring place

    I learned a lot about Konoinia's history from the tour, which included the viewing of a powerful documentary. I recommend the store where you can purchase local organic products. I would like to thank Konoinia's staff for the hospitality.

      Great lunch, good foundation

    I like that Koinonia Farm is absolutely grounded in its history and in its foundations. Also love the food served for lunch, especially because of the care that the community gave to food that they farmed, prepared, baked and cooked. Two thumbs up!

      A Short but Powerful Visit

    My wife and I enjoyed lunch with the Koinonia community on a Friday in July, then toured the farm. Though not a particularly busy time on the farm as our visit coincided with the down time between seasons, we appreciated the tour guide's willingness to treat the two of us with genuine compassion and hospitality.

      Farm visit

    Would have liked more interaction with the staff. The lunch was good. Our host was well informed. I would like to have seen the crops and enteracted with the farm animals. Less than I expected but still enjoyed.

      Clarence Jordan Symposium 2018

    Our family had a wonderful time at Koinonia Farm during the Clarence Jordan Symposium in 2018! The accommodations were wonderful, we had access to a full kitchen, which was a big plus for our special needs with food. Great spaces for terrific conversations. You feel like you are walking on sacred ground when you learn about the history-- make the trip!

      Wonderful place with a rich history

    First of all, for the sake of full disclosure, I'm on the Board of Directors for Koinonia Farm. Not withstanding, Koinonia Farm is a wonderful place with a rich history dating back to 1942. The orchards provide a beautiful backdrop that you can also interact with if you so choose. Accommodations are hostel style with bathrooms in each hallway. All the rooms are comfortable, clean; I've enjoyed staying in those rooms in each of my visits. Additionally there are RV hookups as well as camping space.

      Koinonia Farm

    I found my experience at Koinonia Farm renewing and uplifting. I enjoyed my short time living in community. I benefited from getting to meet people who are not ordinarily a part of my existence in the world. Talking. Interacting. Doing chores together. Breaking bread at the table with one another .....all of this was healing for me. I am truly a city person, born and bred, so it was so important for me to be in this rural hamlet. Being on the farm with the community there opened my eyes to so much about what the soul needs to be warmed and revived.

      Wonderful as usual

    I spent a year interning at Koinonia in 2015 and learned what a wonderful place this is for spiritual practice, both in the community morning chapel and other services as well as personal practice on the beautiful land. When I was an intern I found a new practice and I found a new one this time as well! For details, if you are curious, you can read about my early experiences with dream yoga and other stories from my time at Koinonia, on my blog: http://oceanofspirit.org/davidgaiakano/faith-to-practice-presentation-spiritual-dancing-dream-yoga-at-koinonia/

      Our 2 weeks at Koinonia

    We really enjoyed our time spent at Koinonia Farm. The staff were friendly and made us feel at home. The fellowship was great as we got to know and work and worship with folks from different backgrounds and various parts of the country. We enjoyed being a part of a group that works toward spiritual growth and living out the Christian life in a way that helps the community as a whole. It was also good to be able to involved in the physical work of the farm, doing what needed to be done to keep up the day to day needs that are a part of working farm. Great accommodations with great meals. We would truly recommend Koinonia farm for anyone who is looking to do some volunteer work for a few weeks or as a place to simply enjoy a spiritual retreat. We saw so much opportunity for others to get evolved in the mission and goals of Koinonia. A place we will seriously consider returning to if opportunity allows.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration sparks from my innate charge to connect with a collective innate goodness. I aspire to live in a way that continuously blossoms and embraces my wise and compassionate human nature. Freundl

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
