Farm

Have you ever dreamed of growing your own food? Putney is located on a working farm with vegetable gardens, a dairy herd, a small animal barn, and a managed forest woodlot.

Led by farm educators, you work side-by-side with the school’s professional farm crew. You will learn about and  be able to discuss sustainable farm practices and the future of small-scale agriculture.

Students are introduced to dairy farming by taking turns working early morning chores. You will visit small- and large-scale farms and meet a number of local farmers. Learn about Vermont cheeses by visiting a local artisan sheep cheese maker and tour a nearby cheese factory.

Work hard, get dirty, and experience the satisfaction that comes from this unique combination of labor and learning.
