Plowshares Farm Center

We offer groups of all ages, from preschoolers to adults, opportunities to reconnect with basic elements of life as experienced here on the farm. From simple educational programs for school children, to more involved immersions in farm living, and reflective retreats, we offer opportunities for you to:

 

  • Engage your body, your mind, and your spirit. We offer you and your group a whole-person experience, providing opportunities for you to share in simple labor, to engage in active learning, and to experience moments of silence and reflection.
  • Explore themes of kinship, reverence, and covenant. Woven through your experience at Plowshares will be opportunities to consider the deep sense of communion that defines our existence, the sacredness of such connections, and the responsibility we share as human beings for the continuing cultivation of these relationships in our everyday lives.
  • Encounter the sacred mystery. You will be encouraged, in your own personal way, to open your heart to deeper meaning. Through time for silent contemplation or group reflection and discussion, you will have the opportunity to more fully develop a sense of reverence in the face of life and death realities on the farm and in nature.

Shearing

Glowing screens possess the world,
distracting and disturbing,
as two men meet in a simple barn
to do a job that must be done.
And in its course, it offers them
a chance for friendly conversation.

Light of the Moon

Plant your feet 
in the light of the moon,
best in a fertile sign
and bare-footed.

What do you know of the wind?

Winter’s mud still clings to my boots
as joyful twittering
brightens the sky
above the plain and simple barn.

So close to a cow

Have you ever stood so close to a cow
you could smell the sweet breath of her breathing?

Celebrating 20 years

As Plowshares Farm Center for Education and Spirituality celebrates the twenty year anniversary, we share this short reflection of why we came to the farm and how life has evolved since then.

Jack, the Farm Dog

Introducing Farmer Bob’s best buddy, Jack, our Farm dog. If you’ve been to Plowshares, you’ve likely been greeted by Jack. If you haven’t been here yet, here’s your chance to meet him.
