Manhattan Country School's 7th and 8th grade classes (Norte and Sur) made their first trip of the new year to the Farm over the last two weeks. For the Norte class it was the first week back to school after Winter Break. These first trips of the year are filled with students catching up and sharing stories from vacations or holidays. What better place to do this than at the Farm on a hike or the dinner table. Read more
