Condition & Current Use
Silverbrook Manor is being revitalized as a farm estate, passionately committed to reviving time-honored agricultural practices while fostering innovative opportunities for a new generation of cooperative farmers. Our aim is to epitomize a successful, holistic farm that offers an extensive array of products, such as apiaries, livestock, fresh eggs, mushrooms, microgreens, medicinal plants, vegetables, flowers, and herbs – all cultivated organically through regenerative and holistic methods.
At the heart of our activities at Silverbrook Manor lie the core values of education, innovation, and the restoration of biodiversity. Our Research & Development center will exhibit an array of sustainable farming methodologies, encompassing learning and market gardens, wild pastures, food forests, and biomass yards dedicated to compost and mulch management. With a focus on medicinal, indigenous, and culinary products, we will organize exclusive demonstrations, presentations, and dinners in collaboration with renowned chefs and fellow growers. These events aim to share our collective wisdom and lend support to the World Taste & Smell Association, a resident Nonprofit Organization.
We are actively pursuing collaborations with a beekeeper, indoor specialty mushroom experts, an herbalist, and a cut flowers specialist. Furthermore, we welcome fresh proposals and are eager to serve as an incubator for groundbreaking agricultural endeavors. If you are interested in submitting a proposal, volunteering, or joining our farming community, please CONTACT US through this link.
