We've been farming organically and building community since 1974 on 135 acres in rural, northeast Missouri. We grow the great majority of our food and share income, meals, vehicles and other resources. Our current membership consists of seven adults and a four year old child. We work on our land, and also support ourselves with jobs "off the farm."

We try to lead a simple and healthy lifestyle; creativity, ecological sustainability, nonviolence, personal freedom, honest communication, consensus decision-making and emotional support are our core values.

Our land includes large vegetable/herb gardens, orchards, woods, hayfields, bee yards, cropland and pasture. We raise chickens for eggs, meat and manure. We sometimes also raise turkeys. We hunt deer on our land. We produce and sell sorghum syrup, honey, garlic, mustard, horseradish and various seasonal condiments . Our population swells during the growing and harvest seasons with interns, visitors and guests. Our fall sorghum harvest has become a Sandhill tradition. Not only is sorghum syrup our biggest agricultural income source, it's also one of our main social events of the year. New friends and old from all over the country and other intentional communities come to help bring in the crop and join in the fun.

We give tours of our community, and sometimes host visitors who are interested in getting to know us better. Contact us if you are interested in one of these options.
