We would like to thank all of the volunteers from KPMG who came out here on Friday, April 22nd to help around the farm. We cannot thank you enough for all of your support. It is because of people and companies like yours that Auerfarm can maintain the property and keep it beautiful for all of the students and visitors.  Thank you again from all of us at Auerfarm.

Spaces are almost gone for our Sprouts Program!

Young children experience the farm with all of their senses - brushing a goat, harvesting and tasting fresh vegetables, tracking wildlife, taking hayrides, listening for birds and more. The children will explore the farm together from trails to gardens and the many wild spaces on our 120 acres. We will be running two - one week sessions from 9:00am - 11:30am.  Cost is $135/week. This program is open to children in Prek/K. For more information, please contact Mark DiBella at 860.242.7144 x110 or mdibella@auerfarm.org. To register your child online, please visit http://goo.gl/forms/HStkLvIhoi

From The Blog

Welcome to the 4-H Education Center at Auerfarm! 

We are open to the public from Dawn til Dusk every day.

Auerfarm is a community resource for education, farming, recreation, and community events. It is a sanctuary where you can get outside, visit farm animals, take a hike, work in our gardens, or even start your own plot!

The 4-H Education Center at Auerfarm is a gift of the Beatrice Fox Auerbach estate, established in 1976. She recognized the value of 4-H and the positive experience the farm provided for children. The agreement and commitment we make is to maintain the property as open space and to provide a community resource where children and families learn about and enjoy the ambiance of the farm.

For more than three decades, young people have discovered a special relationship with the earth through visiting the 4-H Education Center at Auerfarm.

There is inspiration everywhere: walking the woodlands and fields, investigating trees, plants, and flowers, or discovering the natural habitats of birds and animals. Students leave here with new curiosity and a love of inquiry-based learning.
