Wheelock Mountain Farm exists to create fundamental social change through education and non-violent action. As a non-profit we create and host experiences that empower people to make change in their lives and to develop democratic leadership within their communities. Located on 600+ gorgeous acres of pasture and woodland, we are committed to preserve and protect the ecological integrity of the land and to share its richness with the larger community.
Hosting Your Event At Wheelock Mountain Farm
Wheelock Mountain Farm has been hosting gatherings of two to 200 people for over 15 years!!
We're warm, welcoming, and very user friendly. Our facilities have
proven perfect for those who appreciate stunningly beautiful outdoors
and a touch of creative funkiness indoors. (Sound intriguing?!)
A quick run down of what we have to offer:
"The Shed" - our electrified multipurpose room, usually the center of
gatherings. Large tables and chairs for about 40 people. Kitchen
with fridges, sink, freezer, and a huge commercial gas stove and oven
(it is our pride and joy). Cooking tools, dishes, cups, silverware,
etc. for 100+ people. Some amazing feasts have come out of this place!
Lots of nearby lawn, chairs, benches, and a large tent for overflow.
Stone House" - our off the grid circular magical house. Great for
quieter and/or smaller meetings and gatherings. Also used as a
bunkhouse for up to 15 people.
"The Sugarhouse" - more like a
Sugar Cathedral, the center of our maple sugaring operation was built
with gatherings in mind. A treasure out in the woods with high
ceilings, lots of benches, stained glass windows, a wood cookstove, and
"Grace Paley Palace" - a small cabin built
during trans and women's construction workshops in memory of our friend. Sleeping lofts and privacy with a stunning
view. Great for cozy meetings, private get-aways, or for folks who want
to be near the tenters, but aren't able to stay in a tent
Camping sites for innumerable people - in open pastures and wooded areas Outdoor showers and sink (with hot water) Composting toilet outhouses A gorgeous hilltop campfire ringed by mountain views A 15x30 overhead tent for just a bit more protection from the elements
Lots of land and trails to explore - diverse woods, mountain views,
pastures and meadows, wild blueberries, a beaver pond. . . And the beautiful Flagg Pond, pictured in this website's header, for swimming, kayaking, and canoeing
While the land itself is canine heaven, we ask that you do not bring
your dog buddies with you. Our farm realities (chickens and ducks who could get eaten, horses or cows who could get harassed, gardens that
could get tromped, and electric fencing that just hurts!) make it
difficult to welcome unfamiliar dogs. Thanks for your understanding.
