Farm Outing Day 2020
Manhattan Country School’s Farm Outing Day, a community picnic for MCS families (including new families joining the school in the fall), alumni and friends at our 180-acre farm in the Catskill Mountains, will be held on Saturday, June 13, 2020.
About the MCS Farm
The MCS Farm consists of 180 acres of meadows, pastures, woods and streams at the base of Plattekill Mountain in the Catskills. There is a three-story farmhouse with an attached greenhouse, an outdoor wood-burning oven, a large barn, nature lab, weather station, textiles studio, a sap house for producing maple syrup and a recreation building. The historic Stone House is used for demonstrations of traditional woodstove cooking and for conferences. Livestock at the farm includes dairy and beef cattle, sheep, pigs and chickens. Two large gardens provide vegetables consumed year round.
