Private Events and Retreats

Snow Farm - The New England Craft Program

“It was the perfect place to celebrate."  

Come to Snow Farm with your friends, family, or colleagues to enjoy the countryside and create the exact event you are imagining.  We have hosted inspiring birthday parties and relaxing family reunions, gorgeous weddings from formal to barefoot, b'nai mitzvahs, and corporate retreats.  Your club is welcome for hiking and a custom crafts program;  your family is welcome for celebrations of all kinds.  We offer our chef, our beautful grounds, and our friendly staff to help you plan.


Snow Farm is a lovely location for your conference, meeting, or corporate retreat. We can design a craft program, taught by professional artists, which will be tailored to your needs, from a small intimate group of twenty to departments of one hundred or more. If all you require is a quiet meeting space with meals and housing, Snow Farm is ready to accommodate your group. We guarantee your organization will be rejuvenated, refreshed, and energized after Snow Farm experience.

Community and School Groups

From high school art students to Girl Scout Troops to birthday parties, Snow Farm will put together a cluster of classes which will expose your group to the world of fine crafts and provide them with an empowering and memorable experience. Our hands-on classes are taught by professional artists who will inspire and draw out each student’s creativity.

Available Classes:

  • Ceramics
  • Glassblowing
  • Woodworking
  • Flameworking
  • Drawing & Painting
  • Welding
  • Metalsmithing & Jewelry
  • Textiles 
  • Mosaics
  • Outdoor Sculpture
  • Animation
  • Digital Photography
  • Video/Film

Additional classes can be arranged. Not all studios are available at all times, and some classes have specific time constraints. We can accommodate up to 8 students in each studio, although some studios are capped at 6. We’d be happy to help you plan out your time here to best meet your needs.

If you have a skilled group of students, we can arrange for more advanced classes or for the rental of our facilities, such as our gas reduction kiln in the ceramics studio or the furnaces in the glassblowing studio.

Snow Farm will arrange instructors for all classes. Meals are prepared on site by our kitchen staff, or students can bring their own bag lunch. Overnight accommodations and multi-day classes are available as well.
