Wanderwood connects guests and our community to vitally important forests, fields, lakes, streams and agricultural lands that surround us. We are a sustainable events business (hosting weddings, overnight guests, and other celebrations) built around an organic farm. We are committed to wholesome food and farming, sustainable building and landscaping, healthy living, and natural beauty. We aim to provide caterers, overnight guests and our community, with produce grown on our farm and working forest. Our goal is always to create a kind, supportive, fun, and active place to work as a cohesive farming team.

Our farm sells to caterers and restaurants, has a small CSA, and sells at our weekly on site farm stand.
