"Lessons that shape students’ thoughts and inform future decisions come in steady waves while living, working and playing at the MCS Farm. Experiencing the dawning moo of a cow, baa of a sheep or fee-bee song of a chickadee cannot be replicated by a book or website."
—John McDaniel, MCS Farm Director
While Farm trips are on hold due to COVID-19, you can still get a glimpse of life at the MCS Farm. View the live feed here.
The award-winning Manhattan Country School Farm is a small working farm in the Catskill Mountains, 150 miles north of New York City in Roxbury, NY. The source of “Country” in the school’s name, the 180-acre property features a farmhouse that sleeps 24 students, a textile studio, a nature lab, a greenhouse, a barn, a recreation building, a sap house, a chicken house and a historic stone house. Over the course of the 10 years students attend MCS, they spend a total of 17 weeks at the Farm.
