About Us

HomeFarm at Undermountain (“HFU”), a 501(c)3 nonprofit, commands a 95-acre property at 400 Under Mountain Road, Lenox. Overlooking Parsons Marsh, it is comprised of historic farming structures and equestrian facilities including stables, a large covered indoor arena and grazing pastures and riding trails.

A generous gift of the Sprague family of the 10-acre property and structures in April 2023 exponentially enhanced the Farm’s ability to serve a plurality of communities through an equestrian-based mission that contributes to:

  • Historic Preservation & Conservation
  • Farm-Based Health
  • Support for the Berkshire County arts community

Historic Preservation & Conservation

  • Teach the value of nature and an appreciation of the history of the land—using HomeFarm’s traditional New England facilities—lessons that students can apply to life beyond the farm; and,
  • Upgrade and maintain the stables, indoor arena, paddocks, and fields of the farm—which are surrounded by land protected by the BNRC.

Farm-Based Health

  • Support physical and mental health services in Berkshire communities with the proven benefits of horses in healing, wellness, and personal development—in partnership with local human services, wellness, and mental health services organizations. Our Facilitators are certified by the National Education Institute of Growth Through Horses (N.E.I.G.H.);
  • Rescue, foster, and provide sanctuary for farm animals—for the sake of the animals themselves, and for therapeutic bonds that foster healing in humans as well;
  • Provide youth an opportunity to work with horses and other farm animals; and,
  • Develop organic food garden programs that will offer individuals and families the opportunity to grow their own food while learning about the importance of sustainable agriculture practices.

Support for the Berkshire County Arts Community

  • Create studio space for artists at affordable prices;
  • Support programs to teach the art of landscape painting; and,
  • Provide performance and rehearsal space for actors, dancers and musicians.
