Koinonia Farm is an intentional Christian community founded in 1942 just outside Americus, GA. Today’s focus is feeding the hungry, both spiritually and physically. Koinonia continues to offer fresh pecans and other baked goods world-wide through its mail-order business, offers spiritually formative internships for those interested in exploring intentional community and social justice values, and is a leading example of regenerative farming using Permaculture methods.
Situated on 575 acres in Sumter County, we raise 100% grass-fed beef and pastured pork, sold locally by the cut, and pastured eggs, sold locally by the dozen. We do not deliver. We are committed to regenerative agricultural practices based on the belief that we are to be stewards of God’s creation. No antibiotics, growth hormones, pesticides, de-wormers, or synthetic fertilizers are used in raising our animals.
We use rotational grazing to ensure optimum health for our animals and the land on which they graze. This also means delicious, nutrient-dense meat and eggs. Our naturalized Pineywoods cattle eat only forage, supplemented with kelp meal for trace minerals. Our Mulefoot and Tamworth “heritage hogs” and our mixed flock of laying hens range freely, supplemented with grain. Our meat animals are slaughtered and processed at a state-inspected, humane facility, within an hour-drive from the farm.
Koinonia Farm also sells seasonal, naturally-grown vegetables as well as pecans, baked goods and books through our on-site welcome center. Koinonia continues the experiment in Christian living, striving to be a demonstration plot for the Kingdom of God. Visitors are welcome year round, often coming for retreats or to help out around the farm.
