Summer Farm & Forage Tours
We have been having a wonderful time hosting our foraging tours this summer! In July, the
Many Hands Peace Farm partnered with
Yoga Highlands on a Foraging and Yoga Excursion event. Later in July, the Farm staff hosted a farm and forest to table foraging dinner for a group of local guests.
We've been blessed to have large harvests of wild Chicken of the Woods mushrooms, Chanterelles and Black Trumpets this summer. These are all gourmet mushrooms that we've been able to sell at market and serve to our guests.

Watch for updates about the new Many Hands Peace Farm Camp in the coming weeks. Our new Farm Camp 2019 is being designed as a week-long overnight camp program for youth ages 12 to 17 years. Campers will stay in cabins and spend time each day learning about different aspects of sustainable farming and living in addition to traditional camp and outdoor activities.
