The Sanctuary

The Barn at New Spring Farm

Constructed in 2017, Our Barn was created with multiple functions in mind. As the backbone of our sustainable farm, our barn provides housing for some of our animals, as well as a certified kitchen to process and prepare the food that we grow. It’s strategically located on our farm to maximize the use of the surrounding land while increasing efficiencies. The barn is also home to some of our sacred spaces, including our Studio, which supports our wellness offerings.


We worked with Sustainable Designs of Vermont to design and construct the most energy efficient and environmentally conscious barn possible. By repurposing wood from one of the oldest known houses in Peru, VT and installing a mineral wool insulation on the exterior, we were able to maximize our resources, while using materials that increase efficiency while reducing waste. We also combined the use of a high-efficiency Geo Thermal heating and cooling system with South facing passive and active Solar Systems to maximize energy efficiencies.
