Who We Are
A non-profit organization established in 1974, Gita Nagari Eco Farm and Sanctuary is home to the first USDA Certified slaughter-free dairy farm in North America. Although there are other farms claiming to be slaughter-free and USDA certified as well, Gita Nagari is the only farm USDA certified whose slaughter-free practices exceed the average lifespan of cows (+18 years). Operated by a diverse team of volunteers whose vision is to accelerate global transformation through compassionate living, the Farm is well equipped to host your next immersion in nature.
Why We Do It
In a time when environmental degradation, ecological contamination, and animal exploitation have become the norm, our team has committed itself to providing a viable alternative. Gita Nagari’s eco-farm and sanctuary is an innovative model for both planetary and personal sustainability.
How We Do It
Our core values of balance, education, and personal growth are what drive our actions. By honoring the sanctity of all life, preserving our environment and developing meaningful relationships with our community, both local and abroad, we hope to inspire the much needed change in our world today.
Leap into a lifestyle of compassion by adopting one of Gita Nagari’s cows or oxen. Together our contributions bring global transformation into reality – one cow at a time.
Here at Gita Nagari, we believe that good food is not just about what reaches the store’s shelf. Real nutrition is as much about the purpose behind a product as it is about its ingredients. That’s why we uphold the highest standards of compassion and ethical treatment of any USDA certified farm.
Experience deep nourishment from the milk, yogurt and artfully crafted cheeses produced by our loving cows in small batches here in rural Pennsylvania, all coupled with the knowledge that your purchase helps protect the cows of our sanctuary for their entire lives.
Watch as we progress and make a contribution towards the self-sufficiency of Gita Nagari!

Working Farm Retreats
Gita Nagari doubles as a productive farm and an eco-retreat center. If you’re looking to reconnect with nature while contributing to a progressive project which has self-sufficiency as its core principle then look no further! Our working farm retreats allow you to subsidize guest rates with some practical service.
Behind the organic farming principles and the lifestyle of compassion practiced by the residents and volunteers at Gita Nagari lies a deep commitment to personal growth and spiritual development. We invite you to host your own spiritual retreat amidst the tranquil atmosphere of the farm as we progress together.
Feedback From Guests
Couldn’t ask for a better and relaxing weekend to start the new year off with an amazing yoga retreat. Met incredible new friends, ate delicious food, took in gorgeous sights, and took some of the most energizing and calming Yoga classes ever. Feeling blessed @ Gita Nagari Farm
I had such a wonderful impactful time at your farm and I really hope you are immensely successful. I plan to bring my family with me next time. I want them to learn about compassionate living, non-violent communication, and voluntary happiness as you put it as well.
I want to say it was a really fun, relaxing and spiritual retreat. I want to thank everyone for such a good time! It was a pleasure to spend the weekend with you! @gita.nagari.eco.farm #dairyfarm #slaughterfree #sanctuary #adoptacow @ Gita Nagari Farm
