Our Vision

We envision a community where everyone has access to good, healthy food. Our vision is to facilitate opportunities for our community to actively and joyously participate in growing food while learning and sharing sustainable skills that bring us back into relationship with the land, each other, and the Spirit.

Our Core Values

Food Justice. At Stony Point Center, we define food justice as a transformation of the industrial food system in which land, animals, workers, and consumers are respected and honored in the production and distribution of healthy, nutritious food in local and regional contexts. We believe everyone has a right to eat good food every day, and that all people should have access to food that is produced sustainably and keeps them healthy.

Our farm is committed to raising people’s awareness about how their food is produced and teaching people how they can participate in sustainable food production and food justice advocacy.

Hospitality. The core mission of Stony Point Center is to offer hospitality to our guests that helps them feel comfortable, respected, and safe while they stay with us. Serving guests fresh, home-grown food that nourishes their bodies and spirits is the farm’s contribution to our hospitality endeavors.

Sustainability. The Stony Point Center farm is committed to practicing agriculture in a way that is ecologically mindful. With an approach that seeks to conserve resources and employ organic growing techniques, our aim is to practice a brand of agriculture that is regenerative, restoring life and fertility to our land and community.

Spirituality. The Stony Point Center community is made of up individuals from a variety of faith traditions. Seeking peace and justice in our world is the common thread that unites our community. Our farming efforts are one way we explore our faith traditions, deepen our connection to peace and justice and the land, and to strive to put our faith into practice.
