Michaelmas Farm is a family
homestead in north central Massachusetts. We raise goats and chickens, maintain gardens, and actively engage
in biodynamic agricultural methods and practices. 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. Our learning center is
home base to community-based initiatives serving homeschooling
families and others who share an interest in our programs.
Warmest Autumn Greetings!

is emerging this year, you're in the right place!
We are in
the process of developing two new initiatives.
is a community-based initiative for learning and spiritual renewal. Our primary purpose is to serve parent educators inspired
by the insights and work of Rudolf Steiner. We emphasize programs related to inner development, including retreats
Alliance for Home Education is a sister project
of Hearthways, yet also stands on its own as an independent educational initiative. Our primary purpose is
to serve parent educators by offering a process-oriented curriculum studies training program. We also offer other
programs and services out of a grassroots-based approach.
These websites are still under construction at this
time. We anticipate finishing these sites sometime this fall. Both initiatives will be launched in spring 2015.
