  • What's it like in Southern Indiana?

If you aren't from this area, then you might not have an idea. It's a hidden gem. It's very beautiful and hilly, with lots of forest. The Farm is near lots of national forest and several lakes. We have a really nice food co-op in Paoli, about 9 miles away. French Lick is just about 5 miles away. It's a little tourist town, with several historic spa resorts, lots of restaurants and things to do. Bloomington, a progressive college town, is about 1 hour away and so is Louisville, which is culturally diverse and has a lot going on.
