About the Farm

Cobble Hill Education & Rescue is a 25 acre property in beautiful Williamstown, Massachusetts. Our mission is to serve the community by engaging students and families to learn about and enjoy the many benefits of farming and our natural environment. We will offer engaging experiential learning opportunities for students & educators integrated with our animal rescue operation. 

What We Do

We have formed a 5013c non-profit an animal rescue to support animals and their owners who can no longer care for them. Our goal with each animal who arrives on our farm will be to rehabilitate them - physically and otherwise - and to seek to re-home them whenever possible. We will provide educational enrichment opportunities for students in the Northern Berkshire area. These programs will support our rescue mission at the same time that they educate the non-farming community about the joys and challenges of running a small farm in the region. Our offerings will evolve to meet the needs of the community.
