Today, a school bus crunches over the gravel driveway and comes to a stop. Kids race off it, and their excited chatter fades as they make a beeline for the old renovated barn, refurbished with materials salvaged from the local trash pickup. After decades of effort, Sprout Creek Farm is at now an award-winning cheese producer and a fully functioning farm, summer camp, and classroom. The farm is 200 acres of rolling green, marshy waterways, student residences, a milking parlor, creamery, kitchen, and shop. When you survey its sprawling glory, it’s hard to imagine that Sprout Creek could be struggling to stay afloat.
