Mountain School students are an integral part of a working organic farm. Fall semester students harvest our three-acre vegetable garden, help to rotate the cows and sheep from pasture to pasture, harvest apples from our orchard and make apple cider, care for the turkeys, chickens, and pigs that will feed the school over the following year, and make tea blends with fresh herbs from the frame garden. Spring students make maple syrup, assist with lambing, harvest greens from the greenhouses, feed and care for the barn animals, prune the apple orchard and help to plant the garden that a new group of students will harvest in the fall. Students in both semesters cut firewood that will heat our buildings through the winter.
