Rodale Institute


For more than 60 years, Rodale has scientifically researched, documented, and shared the benefits of organic food for human and environmental health. And they have always had an “open gate” policy.

Be their guest and enjoy yourself and discover their work while strolling through the 333 acres of a multipurpose farm. Visit the Garden Store located in a historic one-room schoolhouse. The store specializes in books, organic plants and compost, eco-friendly gardening supplies and gifts, and treats from local artisans.

See their heritage breed livestock in all areas of the farm. Sign up for a hands-on workshop or a farmer field-day to dig into the details of growing good food. Join the team for a festival when they throw open all the doors, let their hair down and pull on their fancy boots for a family-friendly good time... like the Apple Festival! Or, feel free to take off on your own and walk the farm. Audio tours and printed self-guided tour booklets are available from the Garden Store.

From farmers to eaters, educators to community leaders, old and young, there is something for everyone at the farm. As you walk through the fields of grains, orchards and gardens, you are actually a witness to history in the making. And to catch up on your organic facts before you go, click here.
