If you’ve ever dreamed of growing your own food, there’s no better place to learn than on Putney’s working farm with vegetable gardens, a dairy herd, a small animal barn, and a managed forest woodlot. In addition to getting your hands dirty with the professional farm crew, you will:
- Visit small- and large-scale farms and meet a number of local farmers.
- Learn about sustainable farm practices and the future of small-scale agriculture.
- Get a full introduction to dairy farming, completing early morning chores and exploring Vermont cheeses by visiting a local artisan sheep cheese maker and tour a nearby cheese factory.
