Down on the Farm
On May 9, a group of Noble residents made the short trek to The Hotchkiss School’s Fairfield Farm where students work the vegetable gardens and tend livestock. All of the food produced ends up in the school’s dining room. More than a dozen student farmers were on hand, each of whom spoke briefly about why they chose to work at the farm and what aspect of it they enjoy most. Then it was time to get to work preparing the vegetable gardens for planting so the students picked up their shovels and rakes and had at it while residents watched.
