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 Summer 2014!
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 an educational initiative offering opportunities to explore the natural world through herbal education, homesteading,
and the path of home learning. We draw from the contributions of Rudolf Steiner and his insights into human
development and social forms as our primary inspiration, placing the human being at the center of meaningful work and
the cosmic world which enriches our individual lives, our community, and our world.

Sophia Alliance for
Home EducationTM is a grassroots community-based initiative serving parent educators inspired by the insights
and 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: JULY 2014:
- Some parts of the
new HearthwaysTM site still need some tweaking. We felt it important just to get the core information
out there so that folks can know about it, and also start to let others know. Please feel free to share with others!
- As you can see, the current web address uses the Weebly name in it. We do own our own domain name for this
site, and will be mapping it over so that it points to the new site sometime this summer. Please just use the Weebly
address for this site. When in doubt, just check back here at MichaelmasFarm.com. We will also have an email
list or blog for HearthwaysTM soon, so that will be another way to stay updated more directly. This service just
hasn't been created yet...but it's coming!
- The site for the Sophia Alliance for Home EducationTM will be finished sometime this summer. We are working very hard to finish at least the core
information so that, much like the HearthwaysTM site, the information will be out there and folks can
start to share it with the community. We are confident that you will love the finished product!
- Finally, there are actually two more websites on the way. One is a biographical website that I am in the process
of creating for professional purposes (writing, speaking, etc.). It's almost finished, and should be ready soon. The other
new site is a brand new one for Michaelmas Farm. This one is going to take a little longer, as we are compiling pictures and
adding on information about sites for our children's endeavors and so forth. We'll let you know when these are both
ready to roll.
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 the warmth of the summer sun, the sweet smell of fresh lavender in the garden,
and the sound of community chatting it up at your local farmers market...
