Jan 27, 2019 09:46PM
Rodale Institute is a living example of the power of regenerative organic agriculture to heal the land and support thriving community. The staff likes to say that the farm is a destination for inspiration, and there are many reasons for the reference. Visit the bucolic 333-acre certified organic farm for workshops and classes on gardening, beekeeping, composting and more. Family-friendly events and film showings take place year-round.
Self-guided walking and audio tours are available at no charge, and visitors are welcome to stroll the farm at any time. Custom guided tours, available for groups of five or more with advance notice, offer a unique educational experience for those seeking in-depth information on farming and gardening topics.
The Garden Store, located in a historic, one-room schoolhouse, features a selection of books, gardening supplies, organic groceries, local artisan goods and more. The Agriculture Supported Communities program offers weekly shares of organic produce and grass-fed pork and poultry to families and individuals in the Lehigh Valley.
With orchards and gardens flanked by rolling hills, Rodale Institute provides a beautiful backdrop for weddings and private events. The season operates from May through October, and the facility can accommodate one wedding or event per weekend.
