Once you are on Haven Lane, PLEASE DRIVE VERY SLOWLY (10mph) and pay close attention to the following directions to get to the correct place:
You will be following Haven Lane, a gravel roadway, for over one mile. You will see signs for “Farm of Peace” along the way. Disregard any “Private Property” signs posted along the roadway.
To Get to the Teaching Barn or CSA:
Turn right onto Haven Lane West. The two story yellow barn is the teaching barn. CSA operations happen in the other large barn with an open face and behind it in the garden. Parking for the teaching barn and CSA is in the small gravel lot between the two barns.
To Get to the International Peace Center:
DO NOT turn at Haven Lane West. KEEP GOING on the gravel road until you reach a fork in the road. Take the slight right and you will see a donkey sign reading “Farm of Peace.” Drive down the hill until you see a small animal shed & a sign pointing left to the International Peace Center. Turn left to get to the IPC (you will see a yellow/gold building with a dome at the end of a driveway); that is where you want to go! (If you continue down the hill to the right, you will arrive at a Farmhouse—just turn around and drive back up the hill to get to the IPC.)
Please Park in the lower visitor parking area. It is best to pull as far up to the bank as possible. Visitors are welcome to drive down to the entryway of the IPC to unload/load their belonging, but we ask that you return your vehicle to the parking lot in between.
We look forward to your visit!
