The Catholic Farmer

The Catholic Farmer

We are Catholics and certified permaculturists developing a sustainable homestead in Northern California. We started our Catholic Worker journey in the 1980s with the Los Angeles and San Diego Worker communities. In the last decade, we have embraced Peter Maurin's vision of farm-based
communities, and have established The Catholic Farmer in the Humboldt Bay area. We invite kindred spirits to connect with us with an eye towards an intentional (and perhaps) residential community centered on spirituality, sustainability and service the poor.
