Now Accepting Internship Applications for the 2017 Growing Season!

We offer a variety of classes, school programs, consultative services and workshops for adults, teens, children and farmers.
Our programs include Farm to School, gardening, food
preparation and preservation, summer camps, farm tours, field trips, workshops and much more!
We are a working organic farm that serves as a model for sustainable growing practices while teaching the next generation of farmers how to grow food.
Through our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program, consumers enter into a partnership to receive a weekly “share” of the farm’s produce - a box of nourishing, certified-organic produce delivered each week throughout the growing season.
We provide our community – as well as travelers from anywhere – a place to hold events in our conference and retreat center. Guests also have the opportunity to experience farm life by staying in either our Bed & Breakfast or certified International Hostel.
We are open year-round and are available for weddings, anniversaries, family reunions, birthdays, or just a relaxing retreat in nature with a farm fresh breakfast!
