November 19, 2023 · elevationweb Embracing Autumn in Copake

From humid afternoons spent by our swim pond to relaxing vacations with friends, our summer was fulfilling in many ways. And as the seasons shift into fall, the energy in our community becomes rearranged. The transition to crisp evenings, cooking soups with winter squash from our gardens, and the beginning of festival season bring us so much joy in Camphill Village.

August 23, 2023 · elevationweb How Do Our Cows Overwinter?

During the warmer months, and even well into the fall, the farmers of Camphill Village walk our dairy herd to fresh pasture where they stay until the next round of milking. But in the winter, conditions aren’t so favorable here in the northeast, so our cows are kept warm and dry in our loose housing area, which is attached to our barn. The loose housing is a semi-open environment that encouraged good air flow, invites in the sunlight that stays on our hillside through the morning, and is an ideal and safe environment for our baby calves when they arrive in late winter.

August 23, 2023 · elevationweb Annual Estate crew Christmas tree deliveries

The annual Estate crew Christmas tree deliveries are a long-running tradition in Camphill Village. Just in time for us to set them up in our living rooms on Christmas Eve, members of the Estate crew load up a hay wagon with trees from a local farm, and spend the day making their deliveries. We decorate our trees on Christmas Eve and enjoy them through the Holy Nights ✨

August 23, 2023 · elevationweb German Christollen

Many of the young coworkers who live in our community come here from abroad. As such, we have exposure to many different languages and customs throughout the year, and these include culinary influences. Years ago, our friend Astrid—a confident baker—showed us how she makes a traditional German stolen bread when she lived in Capella House. Astrid is now a nurse in New York City, but we love it when she visits. We are so glad to share Astrid’s lovely recipe for Christmas Stolen once again.

Giving Tuesday is around the corner, and we’re excited to carry on the tradition of delving into Village life a little more deeply. The donations we receive during our Giving Tuesday campaigns each year play such an important role for our annual fund, especially when those gifts are matched by generous family members.
