Event Description: 
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 before the ballet. ​ Food: Bring a picnic or purchase farm fresh food served by our friends at Mio Bistro, while you enjoy the performance! Their menu will include Chicken Tikka Masala with Studio Hill pastured chicken, local beefalo meatballs, farm fresh salads and more. Seating: Audience members should bring picnic blankets or lawn chairs. There will be designated seating areas for lawn chairs and for blankets to ensure that all audience members have optimal viewing. 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 Two of the Studio Hill Perennial Food Forest Project. Phase One reclaimed 4.5 acres of the farm that was clear-cut for timber. Phase two... ​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.
