"Now I see the secret of the making of the best persons. It is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth."

MOFGA's Journeypersons in residence call our Farmhouse "home." The cape style house is the result of an ecological design contest that MOFGA hosted in 1999. The winning designers were Ned and Avery Wood. The building is constructed of environmentally friendly materials, including wood harvested from MOFGA's woodlot. Features include a wood cookstove that pre-heats water for the house, heavy insulation throughout the building, and floors made of sustainably harvested hardwoods. Provisions were made for solar hot water as well. There are two bedrooms, a bathroom, living room, kitchen, summer kitchen, basement and root cellar. Tours of the Farmhouse happen at the Common Ground Country Fair each year, and by prior arrangement with the residents.

Pictures of the Farmhouse and a description of our Farmer-in-Residence Program appear here.
