The Farminary is a 21-acre plot that was once a sod farm, just a couple of miles away from downtown Princeton.

Nathan Stucky, a 2015 doctoral graduate of the Princeton Theological Seminary and director of its new project, Farminary, grew up on a cattle and wheat farm in Kansas.

He is looking to connect the land – adamah in Hebrew – to theological education. In the words of a piece on him and his project in The Mennonite World Review (read it here), he hopes to “grow the project in an intentional, disciplined way, using the best of agrarian sensibilities, paying attention to the seasons, what is prudent and will bear fruit.”
