Mission Statement

Land. Agriculture. Learning. At Smokey House Center, we cultivate nutritious food, healthy land, a vital local economy, and resilient young people. For the past forty years, Smokey House Center has served as stewards of 5,000 acres of working land in Danby, Vermont. Our careful land management, partnership with farmers, and ongoing conservation efforts support a vibrant, productive landscape, supplying local food and resources. We work with local schools and youth organizations to help students gain academic, social, and real world work skills on our farms and in our classrooms. Smokey House Center serves as a bridge between Vermont’s past and future and is a force for social and economic vitality in Rutland County.

Description

We are building a vibrant farm education center here in Danby. Launched in 2016, the Smokey House Community Farm engaged local youth, visiting education groups, and other volunteers to grow food for hunger relief and community programs, while laying the groundwork for future additional programs and partnerships. We are growing storage crops (e.g., carrots, beets, onions, potatoes, squash, cabbage, etc.) for fall programming and late season distribution. The Smokey House Community Farm honors our strong reputation for work-based learning in a manner that connects us more directly to a wider audience and to the local community.
