The farm was founded in 1971 as a place to learn and practice a diversified, restorative agriculture, which combines beauty, productivity, and ecological health. It was developed by many years of hard work, resourcefulness and key donations from individuals.
The seed of inspiration for Camp Joy came through the work of Alan Chadwick. The farm is characterized by intensive culture, hand labor, raised beds and a garden design that is artistic and bio-dynamic in nature. We grow vegetables, flowers, herbs and fruit as well as keep bees and goats.
