Blue Rock Station´s Story

A living experiment

Blue Rock Station is a living experiment that is based on a focus of “people, planet and profit”. The buildings are crafted from re-used and re-purposed materials such as tires, cans, bottles and clean garbage. The working farm and events attract visitors and interns from around the world to learn what's possible when people live with nature.

In 2017 Annie Warmke began converting an urban-size pasture lot and a 32 acre forest into an edible food forest garden that could feed livestock, wild animals and people. In 2018 a number of plants were propagated to create a resource garden for propagation. In 2019 small fruit bushes were planted to begin the process of converting the land around the parking area and the green house into a food forest. Since then pawpaws, apple trees and elder flower were added. A 1⁄2 acre area was added in 2020 to demonstrate how a food forest can be created on pasture land or developed on city lots.

In 2021 a high tunnel was added to demonstrate how this tool could be used to create a mini-food forest. Two bee hives will be installed in the spring to promote pollination. Warmke Farm is working with Cornell University agroforestry masters level student Carter Chad Cully for the next two years to propagate, plant and expand the food forests.
