A tornado with 150 mile per hour winds hit Apple Pond Farm and Renewable Energy Center on Earth Day, April 22nd, 2023. While people and animals were unharmed, we endured extensive damage to our barn, outbuildings, fencing and home and 750 trees were damaged. We are unable to offer tours but offer free open houses periodically on Sundays so that you may see our progress during restoration.
Watch short videos about connecting with folks who arrived on the farm in the aftermath, and hear shorts from Sonja
