A 400-acre Biodynamic farm in central Columbia County, NY

Welcome

Since 1972, we have been producing high quality, Biodynamic and organic foods while providing farm-based learning experiences for children and adults. Our 400-acre Biodynamic farm includes dairy cows, vegetables, a creamery, organic bakery, sauerkraut cellar, and more. Our Farm Store is a full-line natural foods store open 7 days a week.

Our work revolves around cultivating relationships: with the earth, our surrounding communities and landscape, and with one another. The times are calling for a new form of agriculture – Agriculture 3.0 – that requires a radically enlarged context of sound farming principles, new economic forms and parameters, and renewed recognition of the role of agriculture and agriculturists in our culture and society.

We are glad you have visited and hope to see you in person one of these days!
