Mark Fredette of Sprout Creek Farm (Aired on October 28, 2017 and October 29, 2017)

Sprout Creek Farm (Aired on October 28 & 29, 2017)

Sprout Creek Farm is a 200-acre dairy farm 

started by two nuns who had begun to teach children and teenagers about farming and food at a farm in Greenwich, Connecticut. They were very lucky when the farm was donated to the Society of the Sacred Heart with the requirement that the land be used for education and that the farm be run as a nonprofit enterprise. In this RadioRotary interview, the farm’s Executive Director Mark Fredette, who is also the chef for the farm,describes the many educational programs run by the farm, including a sleepover camp, a day camp, and arrangements for schools to visit as field trips, often staying overnight. The farm’s cows and goats produce milk that is made into delicious cheeses that are sold locally and at the farm. The farm also sells many other farm products, including meat, eggs, and vegetables raised in the farm garden.   (Please click “Download” to hear broadcast).
