Gita Nagari Yoga Farm

Simple Living, High Thinking

Set in the scenic Tuscarora Valley, framed by mountain ridges, boundaried by the Tuscarora Creek on the east side, inhabited by melodious birds and other creatures, home to 9 joyful volunteers, 19 peaceful cows/oxen, and a carefree flock of about 40 peacocks, Gita Nagari Organic Farm of 350 acres of rolling green hay fields, pastures and diverse woods engages in compassionate farming, above all its other activities.

We are a small community set in cozy rural Port Royal, PA with a singular aim of integrating our existence based on the principles of love, care and respect for all living beings. Spirituality, Sustainability and Community Care form the basis of our activities.

Bhakti Yoga

The residents of Gita Nagari relate to God through loving devotional service. They practice bhakti yoga – the yoga of love and devotion. They utlise their abilities, intelligence, talents in service to the Supreme Lord, and in this way they are able to serve each other and the needs of a farm community.

Organic Farming

At this point in time, 100 acres of the farm’s pasture is certified organic. We currently grow hay on this parcel of land. This season, we will start an organic vegetable garden on about 20 acres of this land and launch our first ever Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program. We have now have 160 acres that are certified organic!
