FARM-BASED ACTIVITIES

Guests are welcome to explore the region on their own, or take advantage of the many activities the farm has to offer.

 

Out the door are 30 acres of fields, forest and ponds to explore…walking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, star gazing, camp firing and much more. In the growing season you can wander across the driveway and maybe even help around the farm if you wish.

On the farm we raise over 300 varieties of fruits, vegetables and herbs surrounded by neighboring vineyards. Come on a festival weekend for a harvest dinner and barn dance!

 

Several farm-based educators live and work on the farm. Farm tours and immersions are available on request. Tours are free (based on our availability);  immersion fee based on duration.

COME LEARN ABOUT

  • Permaculture and ecological fruit and vegetable production

  • Culinary and medicinal herb growing and uses

  • Viticulture and wine making

  • Other on-going workshop topics, which are scheduled regularly on our Programs page
