It is in fact impossible
for any culture
to be sound and healthy
without a proper regard
for the soil,
no matter how many urban dwellers
think that their food
comes from groceries
and delicatessens
or their milk from tin cans.

Latest News from the Farm

  • And so it begins...
    First planting
    First planting of the season! Many thanks to our friends at Willow Haven Farm in New Tripoli, PA, for donating a wide variety of plants to us, including cabbage, lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, and more! With no frost in the forecast, we took a chance and began planting already. Anyone who wants to help, just let us know! 

    New bee hives

    We lost all our bees over the winter. Apparentlthis happened to a lot of people this year. Eric the Beekeeper brought us two new hives. We will hope for the best!

    Peter Maurin Hermitage

    Last month we asked everyone to keep Carmina’s brother Hank in prayer as he was considering a monastic vocation.

    Since then, we discerned that we were to invite Hank to live on the farm with us, thus forming our own small community. Hank will live in our new Peter Maurin Hermitage and participate in our life on the farm - ora et labora. He brings a spirit of prayer and peace to us, for which we are grateful.
