I have enjoyed living at Potluck Community Farm since 2010. I have experienced the profound beauty of the land, the changing seasons, the woods, and the wild life.
The community of people that I have shared time with at work and at play I find to be respectful, cooperative, and caring. The community has established itself in such a way that the members are able to solve issues and differences that arise. For me it has been a balance of “privacy within community”.

These are the Potluck Community Farm Values that were created 28 years ago and we read them before every business meeting:
POTLUCK: honoring and accepting what each person brings to the table, making a meal a feast.
COMMUNITY: building and enjoying relatedness by working together, achieving common goals and supporting each other through life.
FARM: nurturing the land so the land nurtures us.
