St Isidore Catholic Worker Farm was founded in January 2016. It is a work of mercy serving homeless individuals in recovery. We provide a farm environment with structured living that combines solitude with community, farm work with creativity and prayer with study. It is our desire to make St Isidore Farm a place of hospitality for all who need time to become grounded in recovery.
