Emmaus Farm is a nonprofit organization dedicated to service in the community of rural Lewis County, Kentucky. Our volunteer staff of Farm Managers facilitates a week of service to Lewis County, Appalachian cultural immersion, and spiritual retreat in the Catholic tradition, for high school and college volunteers. At Emmaus Farm, we invite volunteers to live the cornerstones of simplicity, community, prayer, and service.
Dedicated to the Gospel message of Jesus Christ, and inspired by Catholic Social Teaching, we serve the rural poor, the weak, the elderly, and the marginalized. Our mission is to serve Christ in his many forms, to serve where the need exists, and to allow others the opportunity to see and fulfill the need for service, as well as to experience the spiritual richness of the people of Lewis County.
