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. Take a look at how we align to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Cow Sanctuary

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.

Watch as we progress and make a contribution towards the self-sufficiency of Gita Nagari!

Eco Retreat Center

Summer Camps

As school lets out we invite you to bring your children and their friends for a personally designed summer camp. Create your own agenda, custom tailor your activities and we’ll facilitate the experience. Delicious farm fresh food catered to you, forest exploration, comfortable accommodation, and time with the cows all contribute to remarkable experiences your group will never forget.

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.

Meditation Retreats

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.
