In today’s fast paced society, it’s easy to take life for granted. It’s even easier to overlook the importance of individual responsibility. Nestled in the Hudson Valley of Upstate, New York is the multi-functional Sprout Creek Farm. This just might be the answer to recapturing all that you may have lost. 

A truly unique not-for-profit charitable organization (501c3), Sprout Creek Farm is a fully operational working farm, a retail market, an educational center, a summer camp, a peaceful sanctuary, and a vacation destination.  

Here, everyone works and learns together to maintain a self-sufficient unit. To this day, there isn’t even maintenance staff on the premise, which is spread out over 200 acres.

Margo Morris, Executive Director of Sprout Creek Farm exclaims, “we’re hardwired to know what we need in life. We’ve just gotten so far away from the basic understanding and appreciation of life. In terms of education and responsibility, we’re jamming information down children’s throats. There’s too little real experience and purpose for what they’re learning other than to propel them to the next grade, or the next short-term goal.”

On this working farm, you’ll see free-range cows, chickens, turkeys, sheep, and pigs to name a few. The retail market inside Sprout Creek Farm offers its own eggs, meats, and award-winning cheeses hand-crafted right on the farm. Let’s not forget the other local farm-produced jams, honeys, meats, soaps and much more that are available at the market year round.
