About Us

Follow a mile-long drive down a gravel lane and you will find the Farm of Peace; 150 acres nestled between other farms, state game-lands, and the stunning foot hills of the nearby Allegheny Mountains of south-central Pennsylvania. A two-hour drive from Washington, D.C., Baltimore or Pittsburgh, the Farm of Peace features a retreat and healing center, a working farm and a spiritual community.

Programs include Sufi spiritual retreats and personal growth workshops throughout the year.

Private site rentals bring participants into contact with beautiful woodlands and stunning vistas during any season. Those seeking to enjoy a few days in the country are welcome here, too, through our farm vacation program, a wonderful opportunity to allow entire families to experience a slower pace.

Private rentals are welcomed; please be aware that we are a drug- and alcohol-free facility.

Our CSA and halal lamb production are taking a break in 2022.

We welcome visitors from all over the country and the world to experience the beauty and peace we have found here

Our Animals

The Farm of Peace is home to a flock of Heritage breed Tunis sheep.  Please don’t enter livestock enclosures without a staff member.

We have about a dozen Tunis ewes, who usually lamb every spring, and two rams. The lambs are born reddish brown and develop white wool as they grow up. We raise our sheep mostly for meat, and they also produce wool.  There are no lambs  available in 2022.

Several of our families keep a small flock of free-range chickens and ducks who give us fresh eggs in a variety of colors and occasionally meat.

Friendly farm cats love to be petted and will often follow along on walks (when they’re not napping). 

No pets are permitted inside the retreat center, only trained service animals, out of respect for people who have allergies.

Visiting dogs must be kept on a leash for their safety and for the safety of our livestock.

Sometimes we have poultry, depending on the season.
