At 10:00am, meet The Farm Between's fruit plants and wild flora on a tour led by Sterling College interns Tilly Ewens, Sustainable Agriculture & Food Systems student, and M Robideau, Ecology and Education student. Stroll along the pollinator pathway and past greenhouses, berry patches, orchards, and barns. Your tour guides will discuss farm practices and introduce other members of the farm’s floral ecosystems. Sample some fruit, and find many of the plants grown on the farm available for sale in the retail nursery. The path will be mowed, but please dress accordingly for the weather and your comfort.

Free. Please register by emailing [email protected].

The Farm Between of Sterling College is a perennial fruit and berry farm and nursery managed with an ecological mindset. It was owned and operated for 28 years by John and Nancy Hayden. In October 2020, Sterling College was granted the incredible opportunity to be stewards of the farm, thanks to Margo Baldwin, Sterling Trustee and President of Chelsea Green Publishing, who purchased the farm when the Haydens entered into retirement. The farm now serves as a teaching laboratory for Sterling students interested in perennial systems, agrobiodiversity, beneficial insect habitat, marketing, and value-added food production. The nursery and wholesale accounts have continued as an integrated part of curriculum and the college's work program.
