Tour a Bruderhof Community

Tour a Bruderhof Community


Hello and welcome to Fox Hill. About 200
people live here: families and single people, young and old. This place used to
be a horse and dairy farm. We still have some animals for the kids to take care
of, but if you visit don’t expect to find us cleaning out horse stalls. Most people
work in our Community Playthings business making furniture and equipment
for daycares. Everyone is a volunteer, no one gets paid,
members of all ages participate as much as they are able. So Susan, what are you doing here? I am packing a school bus. Fox Hill is also home to the Plough Publishing house which puts out books on faith, society, and the spiritual life.
So Pete, you got a second talk about the Plough Quarterly? Sure.
Plough Quarterly is a magazine of faith, stories, and culture for people who want
to put their faith into action so if that’s you you should subscribe. Good
stuff. One thing we’re proud of here at Fox Hill is that all our heat and hot
water is produced using a renewable resource: wood chips. Caring for the
environment is very important to us we’re glad to be taking steps in the
right direction, away from oil. If you’re interested in learning more
about us and why we live together and share everything, please visit us. Check
out our event calendar to find out more about what we’re up to, or contact
us to arrange a visit. If you still don’t know what the Bruderhof is about, watch
this, or look at our website. Looking forward to seeing you.

  1. That's how the Amana colonies use to be…along time ago. I miss the old tradition of the Amana's. That great that you can live that way
