About 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. .
