2017 Cheesemaking Kicks Off
The cheesemakers will be back in production facility later this month! The team makes 170,000 POUNDS of cheese annually within a 10-month window. December and January are devoted to packaging and shipping out holiday gifts, painting and repairing production facilities... and some well-deserved rest and relaxation.  

Professional Learning Opportunities for Educators
The Education staff is busy creating workshops and courses for educators looking to connect their classrooms to the big ideas of sustainability. Work with peers to learn how to bring winter wildlife tracking into the curriculum, or join networks devoted to learning and teaching about climate change for all grade levels. Look through our opportunities and keep checking back as we add more to the calendar.
Update! Winter Wildlife Detectives moved to Jan. 28
We're crossing our fingers for snow! Learn about animals that are active in the c-c-c-cold Vermont winter in our cozy, indoor, wintery forest. Then bundle up and go on an outdoor exploration for signs of those animals all around the Farm.
Get the details and register for this family program  here.
Food is at the Center of Learning for Farm to School Teachers
To learn about about Farm to School curriculum connections, why not have teachers  prepare their own snacks and meals that meet USDA nutritional guidelines just like in the cafeteria?
