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.

                                         We Need Your Help!

 
We urgently need at least $10,000 to save the Mushroom Barn at the 4-H Education Center at Auerfarm before winter strikes.  If we cannot cover the top of the barn, where the roof was torn off by a New England nor’easter, it is likely to collapse this winter, never to be replaced. This barn is quite possibly the only one left of its kind in New England and the United States!  For more information, or to make a donation, please visit:

Programs

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.
