Where Sustainability and Art Intersect
Better Farm is a 65-acre sustainability education center, artists' colony and organic farm nestled in the foothills of the Adirondacks and Thousand Islands Region of Northern New York. Through educational workshops, artist residencies, sustainability programming, and an ongoing commitment to green living and community outreach, we strive to apply the "Better Theory" to all our endeavors while offering the curious an opportunity to expand, grow, and flourish.
Better Farm was founded on the Better Theory, a belief that every occurrence is an opportunity to grow. We offer the public a living laboratory of organic gardens, alternative building structures and projects, a 1,500-square-foot studio and gallery space, and a blueprint for environmentally conscious living.
Better Farm is also home to betterArts, a non-profit organization increasing access to the arts in the North Country and beyond. The betterArts Residency Program gives artists from around the world an unrivaled experience creating work against a backdrop of sustainability and communal living. betterArts also offers gallery openings, performances, workshops and other events throughout the year to the public.
