Today, the Samels Farmstead stands fully equipped and
preserved on the site, and it has become an education
center that demonstrates how the same fields and forest
sustained the Samels Family for the last 100+ years.

WELCOME TO OUR SPRING/SUMMER/FALL LINE-UP OF WORKSHOPS/CLASSES/OPEN HOUSES. WE HOPE TO BE BACK!!!
