Create an itinerary including Sprout Creek Farm
Nestled on 200 rolling acres in Dutchess County, NY, Sprout Creek Farm is three entities, distinct, yet dynamically intertwined. It is a working farm, raising free-ranging cows, sheep, goats, wild turkeys, guinea fowl, chickens, and pigs. It is a market, selling internationally award-winning cheese and farm-produced meats, as well as Hudson Valley milk, eggs, vegetables, crafts and gifts. And it is an educational center, offering day, weekend, and summer programs that help connect young people to the land, the seasons, and the plants and animals that co-exist here in harmonious rhythm.

Sprout Creek Farm is a not-for-profit organization. We appreciate our staff and our volunteers! We are a place where a community of experienced teachers and farmers live and teach year-round. They help children develop creativity and ingenuity while making a point of teaching children to see the value and rewards or real work in a nurturing and supportive environment.

We’ve found that the farm setting is a wonderful way to teach environmentally responsible ways of caring for animals, working the land, and living a simpler, more environmentally integrated way of life.

  • A fantastic place to visit, especially during kidding season! Soo many goats and cows that like to say hello, as well as friendly farm cats. Be sure to sample and take home some of their delicious cheese too!
  • We love Sprout Creek Farm! It's a wonderful place to walk and see all sorts of well kept farm animals including, goats, pigs, cows, donkeys, chickens and farm cats. The farmers are friendly and they hold lots of fun activities for kids and families. My daughter loves the goats and we visit frequently. We also love the icecream!
