Recently I went to check out Farm School in Athol, MA. We were given a tour by the founder Ben, who is a lovely fella. We were very grateful for his time, and the several bags of food we were given too. Even after two weeks I still have some veggies left to cook. Farm School teaches kids and adults alike the rewarding if not back-breaking experience of working on a farm. Students are housed in cabins and dorms, which are all hand-built by the occupants. They even mill their own wood there. Fantastic place.
