The healthy social life is found
When in the mirror of each human
The whole community is shaped,
And when in the community
Lives the strength of each
- Rudolf Steiner
Michaelmas Farm is a family
homestead in north central Massachusetts. Currently, we raise goats and chickens, maintain vegetable and herb gardens,
and actively engage in biodynamic agricultural methods and practices. Our learning center space is home base
to various community-based initiatives serving
homeschooling families and others who share an interest in what we do. We draw upon the contributions of Rudolf Steiner and
his valuable insights into human development
and social forms as the primary inspiration for our work.
Happy September 2014!
Whether you are found us because of Michaelmas Farm,
Waldorf Family Network, or some of our new work that is emerging this year, you're in the right place!
We are in the process of developing two new initiatives.
HearthwaysTM is a community-based initiative offering practical
tools for modern-day people inspired by agriculture, education, and natural health.

Sophia Alliance for
Home Education is a grassroots community-based initiative serving parent educators inspired by the work
of Rudolf Steiner. We offer programs and services to empower, support, and enrich the work of families
on this path, including resources for learning, sharing, and building community.
website is still under construction at this time. Please check back soon!
UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 2014:
- Some parts of the
new Hearthways site still need some tweaking. Please check back soon to see the finished product!
- As you
can see, the current web address uses the Weebly name in it. We own our own domain name for this site, and will
be mapping it over so that it points to the new site at some point. In the meantime, just use the Weebly address for
this site. When in doubt, just check back here at MichaelmasFarm.com for the most up to date information. We will
also have an email list or blog for Hearthways soon so that you can stay updated automatically. This service hasn't
been created yet...but it's coming!
The site for the Sophia Alliance for Home Education will
be finished soon!
- There are actually two more websites on the way. One is for my
own professional purposes, including writing and speaking. The other is for our homestead. Please check back here for another
We appreciate your patience as we strive to serve you better!
In the meantime, please feel free to contact us should you
have any inquiries about these new endeavors or need some support: MichaelmasFarm@comcast.net
Stay well and enjoy this beautiful season of late summer!
