our story

where peace takes shape

Located in New Canaan, Connecticut (40 miles from New York City), Grace Farms is a welcoming place, open to all. Grace Farms opened in 2015 with the the audacious mission to make the world a more peaceful place.

Created and operated by Grace Farms Foundation, a not-for-profit organization, Grace Farms seeks to address pressing humanitarian issues of our time and end forced labor in our local and global communities while providing a peaceful place for people to convene.

Bringing people together over shared meals has been central in our journey. In 2014, as construction of Grace Farms was underway, a local supporter, coffee importer, and roaster offered to generously donate all the coffee to Grace Farms to serve visitors, not-for-profit partners, and staff.

For more than a year we searched to identify the very best ethically sourced coffees from around the world. In 2015 we opened Grace Farms with River Roast, a perfectly balanced blended coffee sourced exclusively from women-led co-ops in Ethiopia, Colombia, and Indonesia.

Shortly after opening we began getting calls from visitors asking us to mail bags of the delicious coffee around the country.

In 2021, we created Grace Farms Foods, a public benefit llc, 100% owned by Grace Farms Foundation, with a mission to make the world a more just, sustainable, and peaceful place - one delicious sip and drip at a time.

We do this by inviting everyone to share in Grace Farms, demonstrating and educating about ethical and sustainable supply chains, and giving back 100% of profits to supporting Grace Farms Foundation's humanitarian work to end forced labor worldwide.
