Founded in 1972, we average fifteen to twenty five adults and three to six children. New people participate in an internship of three or six months followed by a year as residents (trial members) before becoming eligible for membership. Please contact us in regards to internship availability. Members and residents work primarily on the farm or in a community owned business (a cafe-bookstore-gift shop, farmers’ markets, contract mail delivery, and a consensus and facilitation training/consulting practice) or occasionally in paid work off the farm. All income and resources are held in common. We are experimenting with different housing patterns, particularly for families; individuals have private rooms, while other living space is common; evening meals are communal.
We are open to new residents; visitors are welcome for a three-day initial visit. Please call well ahead to arrange dates.
