About the Feast & Field Collective

We are a collective of farms that have joined forces in an attempt to sustain an agricultural-rural economy and culture. Embracing value-added processing, as well as diversifying income streams have been essential for small farms to find true economic sustainability. Fable Farm turns the fruit they grow into living wines and vinegars, Kiss The Cow Farm turns their milk into ice cream, and Eastman Farm’s beef and pork, together with Fable Farm’s vegetables, are the staple ingredients for our Feast & Field dinner offerings.

These three farms are also working cooperatively to steward the historic farms of Barnard’s idyllic Broad Brook Basin, keeping the land open and productive for generations to come. The collective is committed to real organic, regenerative agricultural practices with an emphasis on maintaining intimacy between people and the land. Our intention is to use our farming enterprises as a means to reconnect to the rhythms of Nature, not only for ourselves and our families, but for the community at large.
