Press Listings

I encourage anyone using articles to research or learn about The Farm to read several, in order to compare and identify discrepancies in information. In my over 20 years of working with the press, I find that all get some things wrong, but the general sense of who we are comes through.

Since the very beginning of the community, we have used the press and media as a megaphone to express the message of peace and sustainability to the wider world. Follow our history through the years!
