We are a working crop farm and environmental education center, with roots dating back to the 1600’s.  Today we act as a regional education hub offering programs on healthy and sustainable food production, skills for small-scale suburban and urban farmers, and sustainable living practices for local communities.

The farm features demonstration models for backyard farming, animal management, rainwater harvesting, organic composting, and green-roof technology. Visitors are welcome to hike the farm’s 3.5 miles of woodland trails, enjoy a picnic overlooking the property, and visit our chickens and goats. We hold numerous classes and lectures, offers seasonal CSA shares, and maintain a farm stand and U-Pick program during the growing season. We also offer guided tours, classes, and field trips for school groups, garden clubs, and scout troops.

We are committed to donating 10% of annual vegetable production to local food pantries and warmly welcomes volunteers.
