    Overview

    The Farm School mission is to connect people to the land. We are an organization of multiple interweaving programs spread out over almost 400 acres of land in rural Mass, linked together under our common purpose and stewardship. In order to best achieve its mission, racial equity and liberation has become a central goal for the organization.

    Each summer, The Farm School provides children with an opportunity to be at the farm outside of a school visit. During the extended summer sessions, children have the time to get to experience the Farm School on a more personal level. The programs are shepherded by our experienced staff of farmers and teachers. For children who have attended during the school year, we will be doing much the same as you remember – chores, work projects, crafts, tracking . For all of you, new and returning, here are some of the things you can look forward to: milking cows, gardening, building, hiking, caring for animals, working in the woods, haying, star gazing, shooting hoops, sawing timber, throwing frisbees and enjoying the summer breezes with new and old friends.
