About Snow Farm: The New England Craft Program :
Snow Farm is located in Williamsburg, Massachusetts in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains. We are in Hampshire County, in the heart of the Pioneer Valley which is home to many of the country’s most prominent master craftspeople and just outside the five-college communities of Northampton and Amherst.
Our extensive and professionally equipped studios and our living space are a blend of a 1700’s farm and contemporary, architect-designed structures set amidst 50 acres of New England hills and pastures. Snow Farm’s four living modules are designed as a series of double rooms each of which opens out onto a large outdoor deck. Single rooms are available. The kitchen is a focal point of Snow Farm with great, wholesome food made from fresh ingredients. Each meal reflects the same intimacy and caring found throughout the program.
