Earthwise Farm & Forest is draft-animal powered and certified organic, incorporating biodynamic and ecological practices & principles. Much of the farm is 'off-grid' and the farmers have incorporated many conservation practices into their home & farm design to reduce the amount of power, water, and other resources needed to operate a family home efficiently.
The farm tour will start and end at the little farm store, where organic raw milk, vegetables, chicken (frozen), garlic, flower bouquets, pottery and preserves are available for sale. A small tasting table will be set up to introduce you to some of Earthwise's delicious products.
$15/person. Space is limited, so pre-registration is highly recommended, though walk-ins may be allowed. Book here!
Note: The best way to get to the farm is either via Tatro Hill Rd in Randolph, or by way of Gilead Brook Rd in Bethel. Both roads can be found when traveling Route 12 (taking you from Randolph to Bethel). From these roads, GPS will work fine. Do NOT take Spooner Rd.
