GeerCrest Farm is a unique educational nonprofit and living history site!

We offer programs for all ages (predominantly elementary and middle school students) rooted in connecting visitors to the land, history, food, traditional craft, and each other on the amazing 20 acre property called GeerCrest. As with most nonprofits, our funding comes from program fees, grants, and generous donations from regional or national community members like you who believe in the essential nature of our work. Please consider contributing to our educational programs!

100% of your donation goes to support our youth outdoor school education!

There is a palpable sense of purpose in the work that has to be love which is the greatest life lesson I could ever hope for my children to receive. When you love your life and you know who you are-effort, though challenging ceases to be drudgery work.

You are creating magic at GeerCrest and fulfilling a need we didn’t even know we had! I am so honored to join your family and be part of so beautiful a gift to humanity.

I loved the way I really felt accepted into the farm family and was able to contribute and really help out. I learned skills that will help me in the future
