Sylvester Manor Educational Farm

We have a small organic farm at Sylvester Manor, managed by Creek Iversen, Cara Loriz, and Bennett Konesni, the 15th generation of his family to live on the property, and worked by a dedicated crew of young farmers.

The farm, which is in its third full year of operation, grows fruits and vegetables in a place that has been, at times, a native american hunting ground, a feudal plantation staffed by slaves, a market farm selling to cities across the northeast, and the country estate of Eben Norton Horsford, the father of modern food chemistry.

Each of these eras had their own unique culture of food- who grew it, how it was processed, how it was sold, the skills, songs, dances, and stories that accompanied food at all stages- each era was a unique answer to the question: how do we feed ourselves well?

Today, the vision is to explore Sylvester Manor's history by inviting the community to share food grown on the property, to attend workshops, concerts, dances and other events that shed light on food, culture and place.

We hope you'll join us!
