A varied farm location, Auerfarm will delight any painter with exciting subject matter. Fields, fences, flowers, silos and animals provide interest and much color.
Note: The farm has an event in the pavilion so we are requested to avoid that area.
History: Today’s 120-acre 4-H Education Center at Auerfarm, was deeded to the non-profit Connecticut 4-H Development Fund, Inc. in 1976. The farm is committed to growing its successful educational programs and community outreach efforts on this historic community resource.
Founded in the early years of the 20th century, Auerfarm was honored as a model farm in 1950 and was the site for the annual Connecticut Farm Conference in the late 1940’s and 1950’s. The driving force for the long-term success of the farm was Beatrice Fox Auerbach. Mrs. Auerbach achieved national prominence in the 1930’s as the first female president of a leading department store, G. Fox & Co. Her good business sense, humanitarian work practices and philanthropic ventures left a legacy from which people benefit today.
Between the many, varying farm animals, the excited children and beautiful scenery, Auerfarm is an amazing community resource. We hope you will find yourself here, enjoying the simple pleasures of the farm atmosphere.
