Better Farm
31060 Cottage Hill Road
Redwood, NY 13679 US

Forty years ago a group of people descended on a little farmhouse in upstate New York and turned it into a a mecca for the creative, curious, and communal-minded. Steve began a legacy that changed each of us for the better; and one we expect to last well into the future.

Come out Memorial Day Weekend to remember Better Farm’s beginnings, commune once again with the people who helped make this house a home, and meet the latest shade of Better Farmers.

Weekend-long festivities will culminate at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 30, with a big outdoor barbecue and potluck, live entertainment, and slideshow. Friends and family welcome!

We are currently looking for any video footage or photographs for the slideshow – any files you’re willing to share can be sent to

Also contact us at with any questions, suggestions, or to make a donation. Hope to see you!
