The $5 million investment was made possible by a combination of private donations and a Community Facilities Direct Loan from the Rural Development program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which provides affordable long-term funding to develop essential community facilities in rural areas.


Taitem provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection services for this project. The Smith Center was designed and built to Passive House standards, is entirely fossil fuel-free, and is expected to produce more energy than it will consume, reflecting Wolfe’s Neck’s commitment to protecting the environment. 

Wolfe's Neck Smith Center for Agriculture & the Environment

Wolfe's Neck is a nonprofit, farm-based education, research and visitor center situated on over 600 acres. The center focuses on demonstrating regenerative agriculture’s importance in addressing the climate crisis locally, regionally and nationally. 

The new Smith Center was designed to be the centerpiece of a multi-year capital investment to build the infrastructure needed to support Wolfe’s Neck’s growing scope of work.
