About the MCS Farm: The MCS Farm consists of 180 acres of meadows, pastures, woods and streams at the base of Plattekill Mountain. There is a three-story farmhouse, an attached greenhouse, an outdoor wood-burning oven, a large barn, nature lab, weather station, textiles studio, and sap house for producing maple syrup, a recreation building and a historic building, the Stone House, used for demonstrations of traditional woodstove cooking and conferences. On the farm there is livestock, including milking and beef cattle, sheep, pigs and chickens. Two large gardens provide vegetables consumed year round.
