Stonewall Farm in Keene announces its student search for Stonewall Farm School. The School offers future farmers the opportunity to spend a full year learning by working shoulder to shoulder with our experienced staff and administration. Benefiting from decades of experience, students will gain practical farming skills and business background to help them launch a successful carrier in small-scale vegetable or dairy farming. Hard work, critical thinking, problem solving, and the use of appropriate technologies for small farms will be emphasized. Two tracks are offered: Garden or dairy. Both include the study of farm operations and management.
Established in 1994, Stonewall Farm is an award winning working farm, dairy, and a non-profit educational center. The farm operates a certified organic dairy, a three acre garden, three greenhouses, a yearlong CSA, a micropasteurizing plant, a farm store, sugar house, hydroponic barely fodder system and an educational learning center. Our farm hosts over 20,000 visitors each year, including primary school children, college students, and the public. We offer a farm camp for children as well as major agricultural themed events throughout the year. The farm has a strong reputation for excellence in training interns in both our gardens and in our organic dairy.
