About

Bellwether Farm Camp, Retreat, and Education Center offers a model of sustainable living that promotes physical and spiritual wellness, fidelity to the environment, and social justice. It incorporates farming, food production, and eco-stewardship into land-based educational programs for people of all ages and backgrounds.

Our aim at Bellwether Farm is to equip children and adults to become informed, inspired, and empowered leaders for a sustainable future.

Bellwether Farm is bordered on three sides by the Vermilion River and offers exceptional and diverse opportunities for educational programming.

Our 137-acre property includes farmland, woodlands, meadows, hiking trails, picnic pavilions, playing fields, and a five-acre pond. 

This new center exemplifies green building and features super energy-efficient structures, renewable energy technology, water reclamation systems, and repurposed materials. Together the site and its facilities serve as vehicles for teaching the wider community about sustainable living and care of this good earth.
