The healthy social life is found
When in the mirror of each human
The whole community is shaped,
And when in the community
Lives the strength of each
- Rudolf Steiner
Michaelmas Farm is a family
homestead in north central Massachusetts. We raise goats and chickens, maintain vegetable and herb gardens, and
actively engage in Biodynamic agricultural methods and practices. We also maintain a learning center which acts as home base to community-based initiatives serving homeschooling
families and others. We draw upon the contributions of Rudolf Steiner and his valuable insights into human development and social forms as the primary inspiration for all
of our work.

We are currently in the process

is a service arm as part of this new initiative that is dedicated to serving families on the path of home education
inspired by anthroposophy. This project will offer on-site programs for learning, sharing, and community-building, as
well as a variety of online services. The mission is to foster the growth of a grassroots parent-to-parent network.
This project will have its own website, which is also coming soon!
In the near future, we will also
be creating a brand new site just for our homestead which will allow us to share more of what we do in our own homesteading
practices and family endeavors.
Please check back here by mid-April for updates. We intend to have the sites for the new initiative up and running just after Easter,
and can point you in the right direction to find whatever you're looking for!
Our intention is to fully
launch the new initiative in autumn 2014. We hope you will be able to join us here to help us celebrate in the transformation!
