180-Acres of Forest, Fields, Meadows and Rolling Hills
We’ve nurtured our campus to help our visitors develop deep, meaningful connections with the land and environment.
Generous soil, clean air and pure water are the first and most fundamental elements we hold in our hands as we embrace this land. These natural gifts become part of your body as you drink, breath and eat at Pearlstone. For ourselves and our community, we shape an offering of these gifts in the form of profound sensory experiences.
We strive to live in balance and harmony with all life
Anchored in universal values and Jewish wisdom, we welcome people of all backgrounds from across our bio-region, continent, and planet. Grounding principles of care-taking and responsible stewardship inspire us to grow and share healthy food, and we go into the wilderness to heal and gain new perspectives. We learn, pray and engage with our traditions in chorus with the forests and living waters.
The center of our land, we share the abundance of the seasons with all of our guests and program participants. Everyone is invited to stroll through our certified organic vegetable gardens, greet our animals, and find a cozy spot to sit and be here.
For everyone who is seeking the opportunity to share in the harvest, we grow certified organic strawberries to harvest together each spring and offer a rich array of hands-on farm-based educational programs.
Harvesting and serving food – in collaboration with our talented chefs – we offer each person the opportunity to connect to this land with the delicious, yet uncommon dining experience of eating foods that were grown within view of their plate.
Stewarding the Land
All of our facilities are nestled within the container of meadows, forests, and streams. From the beautiful views outside of your window to the ecological landscaping outside the door, this land is calling you to explore its paths and breath in its abundance.

We embody, teach and inspire the practice of environmental sustainability. We make the environmentally friendly choice whenever possible, including everything from recycled copy paper to supplies such as toilet paper and tissues. The water in our Kitchen is heated using a Solar Hot Water Heater, and scraps from kitchen prep go directly to our own compost which is used on our farm. We are always looking for ways to be more green on our own property, and we are leading initiatives to inspire others to do the same around the community.
