12 and under free

Due to the heat, the performance will occur 30 minutes later. Doors will open at: 5:00pm and the show will start at: 6:30pm. The seating and performance area will be more shady at this time and will make the performance more enjoyable for everyone! We also will be bringing in some industrial fans to help keep you cool.

The Farm to Ballet Project returns to Retreat Farm for a fourth season to celebrate the rich farming culture of Vermont.

Set on a grassy stage, the full-length production tells the story of a Vermont farm from spring to fall and will feature live Vivaldi played by a string sextet.

Come early and tour the Children’s Farm and Forest, which includes hands-on animal interactions in an indoor barn, animals on pasture, creative play areas, and a .75-mile interpretive nature trail.

Enjoy locally sourced food from Dosa Kitchen, Jamaican Jewelz, Mach’s Wood Fired Pizza and Vermont’s best fermented beverages at The Thirsty Goat (Retreat Farm’s very own pop-up bar).

Proceeds from this event will support Retreat Farm's Open Barn program, which provides reduced admission for participants of EBT, Medicaid, or Free/Reduced School Lunch programs.

Please buy tickets in advance of the event! Tickets sold the day of the event will cost: $25 general admission and $10 for children 12 & under.
