The Farm New Marlborough is a small family farm with huge ambitions. Our focus is to heal and improve New Marlborough's lands through intensive rotational grazing of our animals. We build soil to feed both the earthworms below the ground and the animals above it. Our mission is simple... to grow quality food in a respectable and complementary way to both the animals and the environment and to rebuild a local food economy through education and example.


With the acquisition of the former Kolburne School in the Spring of 2017, The Farm is continuing to stretch it's legs. Both the farmers and the animals are excited to be working on the renovation of this old farm/school with the goal of returning agriculture to the village of New Marlborough.  The quintessential New England Farm practicing modern agriculture and providing real food to the residents and businesses of the region in a sustainable model.  Real Food For Real Folks!

The Farm New Marlborough is currently engaged on over 500 acres of land throughout the five villages of the town.  We run two herds of cattle, two flocks of egg layers and typically raise six to eight thousand broilers on pasture throughout the summer.  The sixty plus pigs tend to go unnoticed as they keep to the woods and rougher pastures out of site.  On land that is not being grazed we harvest our own hay and try to rotate our grazing and hay lands every three to four years.  All of the animals on the farm have a job and they all take great pride in their work.  They are amazing happy creatures!
