The School at Altenburg’s Farm

The School at Altenburg’s Farm

Harold Altenburg’s wish is to have Altenburg’s Farm continue to benefit the community beyond his lifetime. With his passion for youth and their development, his vision is to form a not-for-profit farm school. The school’s goal is to help young people develop life skills through on-farm learning. The farm will also continue to provide the products and activities the community has enjoyed for so many years.
