I stayed there for about 6 months in 1998. In theory the idea was ok but as with the regular world there was a hierarchy that lived in relative comfort off the sweat and toil of the rest of the community.  Like someone else has stated, "You can shovel shit and feed their pets".  You were forced to go out and beg for money (selling Zendik magazines and tape) acting like it was some kind of place for wayward youth.  The only good thing was most of the girls were pretty cute and at 22 that's mostly what I went for in the first place and they had a very free love type thing going on.  Other than that it sucked!  They kicked me out, drove me like a mile away and left me on the side of some country road like 100 miles from Austin.  Luckily I stashed some money away and made a nice adventure of it despite their self loathing, everybody is shit attitude.  Haha.  Fuck you Zendik Farm.  Life is good and you suck!

I was approached by a crunchy hippy woman while standing in line for a rock show in Cincinnati around 1999. Goofing off with friends to pass the time and bullshitting with the woman she offered a cassette tape of Zandik music for $5. I was reluctant but thought it would make a good souvenir of the meeting. On the drive back from the concert we popped it into the tape deck. It was some of the wackiest shit I've ever heard. Years later the name popped up in conversation which lead me to find out more about this cult. It does make me wonder what ever happened to that woman.

Who and where are these "millions of people" they mentioned who's lives have been touched by Zendick, exactly? Aren't there only like 20 people who live there? How many were there at their peak?

Remember seeing Wulf do his monologues on Austin Cable Access TV.

I still have the newsletters they handed to us on the streets of new Orleans. I wanted to join briefly. Guess it's good that I didn't.

Arol Wulfing (aka Arol Wulf-Zendik) died June 6, 2012. Almost nothing on the web about it, but the Zendik Farm website has a farewell.

i love the slogan to bad it has nothing to do with them they never did anything to influence anyone except for those they want to work on their farm the reporter in me wants to scream DONT SAY MILLIONS UNLESS YOU MEAN MILLIONS, once you make a statement like that and is searous about it, unless its true and you can easly back it up you are no longer credible, and the shirts don't count I know ppl who have those shirts and don't know who or what the zendik farm is, even though it is on the shirt

This was completely uninformative. I stayed at Zendik for about a week in '99 and found them to be pretty sincere individuals. I don't know what's happened to them since
