Located on ancestral Abenaki lands, this historic farm was originally established to provide food and therapeutic experiences in nature for patients at the nearby Brattleboro Retreat.
Today, Retreat Farm is a new nonprofit organization and our gardens and fields are growing food to share with our community, while the Farm’s trails, pathways, and historic architecture are yours to enjoy at no cost. Soak up the antics of our farm animals as they build healthy soils, explore many miles of relaxing and invigorating trails, take in the soothing waters of the Retreat Meadows, and discover something new walking our interpretive trails and viewing our arts installations.
