Dorothy Day inspires Pennsylvania’s Catholic Worker Farm

Life on a small organic farm in northeastern Pennsylvania in the cool early days of spring, adapting to the rhythms of planting, livestock care, and chores, can sound blissful to anyone buffeted by adult pressures and responsibilities. Carmina Chapp hopes you think that. She and her husband, Larry Chapp, both Oblates of St. Benedict, established the farm in 2013 with the goal of providing food for soup kitchens and food pantries, as well as to be a place of contemplation for visitors encouraged to follow Benedictine spirituality.
