Round the Bend Farm (RTB) was started in 2007; it is a 52 acre (with access to 25 acres more hayfield and pasture) farm located in South Dartmouth, MA. The farm enjoys the benefits of close proximity to the ocean, neighboring Audobon Society Sanctuary, and many close farms and friends. RTB has mainly produced animal and vegetable products (pork, eggs, milk, beef, vegetable, herbs and greens, lamb, mutton, wool, goat) in the past. We hope to diversify our produce to include hospitality and educational services and community service. We experience an abundance of opportunity – we capitalize on these opportunities with creative entrepreneurial solutions. The farm is beautiful. The ocean is visible and a nutrient rich sea mist blankets our fields and pastures each morning. Many things grow well at RTB.
The apprenticeship and foodie opportunities will take place from mid- April through mid- November. They will offer potential educational outreach and teaching opportunities in conjunction with a local non-profit; the Marion Institute (www.marioninstitute.org).
