Grace Farms

(2 of 195)


Located in New Canaan, CT

Grace Farms, located in New Canaan, Connecticut, was established with the idea that space communicates and can inspire people to collaborate for good. To realize this vision, Grace Farms Foundation set out to create a multipurpose building nestled into the existing habitat that would enable visitors to experience nature, encounter the arts, pursue justice, foster community, and explore faith. Approximately 77 of the 80 acres are being preserved in perpetuity as open meadows, woods, wetlands, and ponds. Prior to restoring native habitats, Grace Farms was once a patchwork of small rural properties and a private equestrian facility.
