What you'll do

On this experience, guests will go on a guided tour of our pecan orchards. These beautiful trees provide a peaceful walk any time of year. Guests will ride on hay bales in a wagon pulled by a tractor through the pecan orchards. The guide will explain to guests the methods of sustainable farming used and demonstrate methods of caring for the trees.

Guests will then spend time in the onsite bakery, using these pecans to bake Koinonia favorites such as granola, Date Nut Bread, or Cinnamon Spiced Pecans. Bakery work may also include packaging up pecans or other treats to be shipped out to customers and, of course, plenty of delicious samples.

Lunch is included with your experience and is part of the full experience of Koinonia Farm. On any given day, guests from all over the world come together with community members over a shared, handmade meal. We believe a lot of important work for peace and reconciliation begins at the table, talking to new people, and learning about different lives.

The experience will conclude in our Welcome Center and Farm Store with plenty of time to shop all the best Koinonia treats- Fair Trade Chocolate, Farm Fresh Pecans, books, crafts, and more

About the organization: Koinonia Farm



Koinonia Farm is an intentional Christian community & working farm. Our vision is to love through service to others, joy through generous hospitality, and peace through reconciliation. One of the ways we enact this vision is through sustainable farming. Our pecan orchards produce our main crop and since 2012 we have been using biological methods to grow pecans in healthy ways for earth and people.

This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to Koinonia Farm.

Where you'll be

We'll also be in the onsite dining hall for a delicious handmade lunch with the Koinonia community.

Our experience at the Koinonia Farm was amazing, informative, fun, educational, and very personable. We were well taken care of by each person that led the different aspects and steps of our tour and experience. Jim and Norris started our day with a tour of the farm, the pecan orchards and the processing plant.. complete with lots of great info and stories about the history and people of the Koinonia community. Kathleen was wonderful in her part of the tour in the area where she works and supervises. She is passionate about the part she plays in making a quality product for the farm and is a caring, funny and very knowledgeable. Geneva took over when we reached the bakery part of the experience and we had a memorable time with her while we pitted a large batch of dates to prepare them for being stuffed with pecans. We laughed, shared stories and heard more about the workings of the farm, life at Koinonia and got a tour of each different area of the bakery. Overall this was such a memorable and unique opportunity and we loved our experience! This is truly a special place to spend time!

My sister and I enjoyed our tour and time at this special place. We liked learning how the pecans are processed and then hand sorted. The documentary explaining the history of this community was very interesting. We were happy to learn that Habitat for Humanity was founded there. Also we liked helping out in the bakery too. Glad to know about this farm and ministry and hope to go back in the spring.

We had a great time! The hayride was fun and we got to view the beautiful property and learn a lot about the farm. Lunch was delicious as well. Be sure to wear pants (for the hayride) and comfortable walking shoes. All in all a great experience.
