Facilities & Grounds
Bellwether Farm is a unique and affordable option for your next gathering. The center offers brand new facilities featuring a green technology, renewable energy, and water reclamation systems.
The farming techniques employed at Bellwether Farm are consistent with contemporary “green” and regenerative practices. Restoring and rebuilding the soil, utilizing crop rotation, low-impact tilling, and extensive composting, we strive to put back into the earth all that it sacrifices to produce what we need for our own existence. With year-round aquaponic systems and mobile chicken coops that allow natural fertilization, we create growing cycles that replicate the natural cycles of life.
Bellwether Farm is a model of green technology featuring passive buildings, renewable energy, and more. It is a vehicle through which we can teach the wider community about fidelity to the environment, nutrition, physical and spiritual wellness, local food sourcing, food justice, and sustainable living.
