Our 100+ acre farm and cafe are a part of a worldwide network of communities, many of which also run cafes, organic farms, and cottage industries where volunteers are also welcome to stay with us in exchange for participation in our busy life. We currently have goats, ducks, chickens, cattle, and honey bees. We care for our animals to provide milk and eggs. We are now endeavoring to grow and process our own grain to provide non-GMO flour for ourselves and feed for our animals. We would love some support in establishing our granary and infrastructure surrounding it. We also run a café in the tiny town of Oak Hill, New York. We built our rustic Deli with our own hands, using old rustic barn wood and other recycled materials. We love working together to serve good, wholesome food in a warm, encouraging environment.
Help with animal care, household chores, and even some work in our cafe are much needed and very welcome.

We all work together in our houses, on the farm and at our café. There is a lot to do in maintaining a community. We have two houses and a café that need constant care and attention. We enjoy having guests and volunteers who want to get to know us by living and working with us.
We gather together every morning and evening to express whatever is on our hearts, to sing and dance, and to give thanks to our Creator before sitting down at the table to share our meals together. Love is our home. You are welcome to come and see... for a day, or to stay!
We can provide living quarters for the single men and single women. Sometimes we can accommodate married couples who want to visit. We work together to keep our homes clean and secure.
By saying we are a “community” we do not mean a loose association of individuals in a common geographical location. We are more like a large extended family of married couples, single people, and children sharing a common life and vision. Our life together is based on the teachings of Yahshua, the Messiah (called “Jesus” in most English Bibles), according to the pattern of the first-century communities described in Acts 2 and 4.
We do not look to impose our beliefs on our guests, but we do expect them to participate in our life, attending our gatherings and sharing our meals, out of respect and a desire to experience our way of life. We also request that our guests would refrain from the use of alcohol or drugs during their time with us, dress respectfully and help us to maintain the purity of our life.
