EarthDance Organic Farm School

EarthDance is a teaching farm, sharing the craft and science of organic farming with people from all walks of life.

“The farm was founded in 1883, at the time 200 acres, and cultivated by several generations of the Mueller family. In 2010, Molly Rockamann established the remaining 14 acres as EarthDance, an organic farm school and non-profit. Our staff is passionate about growing the local food community through experiential learning and delicious vegetables.”
