Join Farmer Ben in exploring the Community Farm fields and practices. In this interactive farm tour, Ben will cover approaches used for pest management, soil amending based off of tests, tools used, and how and why Smokey House is growing food with and for the community. Come with your questions! There are many ways to approach farming and Smokey House would love to share how we do and learn how you might. Farm tours bookend the open Community Farm work days, in which the farm welcomes volunteers to come play in the dirt.
The tour is 2:00pm - 3:00pm, while the work day is 3:00pm - 5:00pm.
Free. No registration required.
Note: Cell service and GPS can be spotty in this region. Have your GPS running prior to or secure directions from Route 7 before your departure. Look for the Smokey House sign hanging from the wishing well with a black tree for parking.
Smokey House Center is a land based non-profit committed to agriculture and learning. They lease land to for profit farmers who collectively run the farm stand at 426 Danby Mountain Road. In addition to farm leases, Smokey House Center operates a Community Farm Project that grows food with and for the community for distribution throughout Rutland and Bennington Counties. Each year the Community Farm Project engages local area youth, school groups, and individuals to grow 10,000 pounds of vegetables.
