Studio Hill is proud to host Vermont's own Farm to Ballet for a day of on-farm entertainment and education. The farmers at Studio Hill use strictly regenerative farming practices to restore and strengthen the ecosystems on their 4th-generation family farm in Shaftsbury, Vermont. Farm tours highlighting the promise and practices of regenerative agriculture will take place throughout the day before the ballet.

Seating: Audience members are encouraged to bring their own picnic blankets or lawn chairs.
Rain Plan: This show will go on, RAIN or SHINE. In the event of rain, we will move into the Riding Arena, where audience members can be seated on hay bales or their own lawn chairs.
Proceeds generated by the event will go toward building Phase One of the Studio Hill Perennial Food Forest Project. Phase One will reclaim 4.5 acres of the farm that was clear-cut for timber. Once complete, the food forest will be up to 20 acres and will produce fruit, nuts, herbs, flowers, eggs, meat, and vegetables in a stacked system of self-sustaining permanent agriculture. Once established, the forest will be a central component of our regenerative agriculture exhibition and training center.
