  • The greatest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution that has to start with each one of us.

  • The Dorothy Day Catholic Worker Farm is part of the Catholic Worker Movement founded by Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin during the Great Depression. 

    We are an 11-acre homestead raising a variety of crops, a small herd of sheep and goats, and a flock of chickens. 



     
  • 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. 
       

    from Regard For The Soil
    An Easy Essay by Peter Maurin

  • We started the farm in April of 2013 with the simple goal of growing food for the poor. We are now moving towards increasing opportunities to teach homesteading skills to the next generation.  We have an open-farm policy that welcomes anyone to participate in our work and to learn homesteading skills.

    As Catholic theologians, we take particular interest in the theological and philosphical roots of the Catholic Worker Movement. The farm is the place where we put into action the faith that we hold so dear.
