Katama Farm Institute, 508-693-4343
Located on Katama Road about 1/2 mile bike ride from the house. The Farm Institute operates from two large farms in Katama. The first, Katama Farm was purchased by the town of Edgartown with state conservation funds. The second, Herring Creek Farm, was purchased from its original owners after a long legal battle. Both are within a half mile of South Beach.

The Farm Institutes's mission is to reconnect children and the community with farming. Through a variety of programs centered around farming, they have provided a rural farming experience for many children since its creation in 2000. See a working farm, complete with farm animals.
