The Kroka Village
Kroka Village lies nestled in the high country of southwestern New Hampshire between the Ashuelot and Cold Rivers, on 120 acres of forests, fields, cliffs and streams adjacent to a large wilderness area. Here we bring intention, connection and simplicity to the work that we do.
Much of the food at Kroka comes from our own biodynamic farm. We enjoy delicious eggs from our free-range hens, fresh vegetables from garden and greenhouse, berries and apples from our fields, and raw milk, yogurt, cheese and meat from our cows. The food we serve is produced locally as often as possible, and its mindful cultivation, harvest and preparation are a celebrated part of our curriculum and community.
We are proud of our wood-fired and solar-powered camp village, as well as our cooking and administrative facilities, which bring us closer to becoming a “carbon-neutral” organization. Through living and working with these systems, students learn that energy sustainability can be possible within the scale of a small interdependent community. All structures on campus are built with local materials by staff and students working together with local materials. With the exception of the administrative building, Kroka village is internet and cell phone-free.
Our life and work at Kroka seeks to expand and deepen the web of our community. Our farm products are sold throughout the Monadnock Region, and we enjoy rich collaborations and active engagement in serving our local community.
