Company description Grace Farms is a humanitarian and cultural center serving local and global communities.

It is a place for meaningful interaction where people of all ages, experiences and interests come to collaborate for good and pursue peace within Grace Farm’s 80 acres.

Sharon Prince, CEO and Founder, envisioned that intentionally-designed space could communicate a set of values and advance good in the world for years to come. Pritzker Prize-winning architects Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa, of the Japanese firm SANAA, embodied this vision into the design of the River building and barns, creating a site with social and spiritual potential.

The result is a hopeful environment where grace and peace take shape


Grace Farms Foundation aspires to advance good in the world, providing a peaceful respite and porous platform to experience nature, encounter the arts, pursue justice, foster community, and explore faith.


Grace Farms Foundation’s interdisciplinary humanitarian mission is to pursue peace through five initiatives — nature, arts, justice, community, and faith — and Grace Farms, a SANAA-designed site for convening people across sectors. Our stake in the ground is to end modern slavery and gender-based violence, and create more grace and peace in our local and global communities.
