A century and more ago, Sanborn Mills Farm was a bustling, thriving center of agricultural activities that supported an extended family and served the community. Today we have gathered a group of instructors, farmers, craftspeople, and historians dedicated to teaching the traditional skills that were commonplace then. We provide opportunities for people to learn old-fashioned ways and explore how they can be integrated into modern life. We believe that these skills and a vital connection to the land continue to be important and relevant. Come join us in this endeavor to preserve and build upon the legacy of those who came before us.

“Now, as then, we see the abstract values of an industrial economy preying upon the native productivity of land and people.” – Wendell Berry
