Who We Are
Our mission at Mulberry Meadow Farm School is to provide an agriculturally-immersive, individualized education that fosters growth and builds character.
More specifically, we use the teachable moments and practical skills inherent in agriculture to guide children to be independent, curious, and world-wise. We leave behind the rote memorization and standardized testing in favor of a more personalized education, where our students are constantly challenged to apply what they learn to everyday situations. We acknowledge our students' successes and failures, and encourage improvement no matter the outcome.
We strive to promote values that guide individuals to become:
What We Do
At Mulberry Meadow, the farm is our classroom and learning happens in the fields and the barn.
Our produce is grown using nutrient rich, organic methods. We pull weeds and pick pests in order to ensure healthy crops. Our livestock are free to eat grasses and insects and to have as much exercise as they wish. The animals all play a specific and integral role in a balanced and sustainable farm environment.
By tending crops and caring for livestock students learn:
Farm management and maintenance
Responsibility and respect for animals
Patience and planning
Business and financial skills
Gardening and harvesting
Plant identification and uses
Relationship with self, others and nature
There is never a dull moment at Mulberry Meadow. From beekeeping, to picking flowers, to making friends with our resident birds and beasts...our students interact with the world in fascinating ways!
