Featherbed Lane Farm is 63 acres of mixed woods, wetlands and fields - roughly half of the property is open, tillable land. With its high quality soils, level fields and adequate water sources, the property is well-suited for agriculture. With its diverse habitats and ecosystems, the farm is also a wonderful place to encourage and sustain wildlife.
Ideally, farming can be done in a way that balances agricultural production with the maintenance of soil and water quality, wildlife diversity, farmworker rights and health, economic conditions and community development. There is not one best way to farm, rather it is an evolution that needs to account for context. We see it as an always changing pursuit, to farm well. We invite you to learn more, ask questions and be a part of doing the best we can here at Featherbed Lane Farm.
