Elm Lea Farm at the Putney School

Putney, VT

Elm Lea Farm is really a private, co-ed, boarding High School in Putney, Vermont. It was founded in 1935, and its original founder believed that work should be part of an adolescent's education. That is still the case 77 years later, and every student in the school helps out. Each student has to rotate through various programs where they work with the herds, help with the crops, and learn about farming and husbandry. They also clean the dorms, serve food in the dining hall, and do all manner of chores necessary to keep the school going.
