OQ Farm
The natural and tranquil beauty of 500-acre Ottauquechee Farm in Bridgewater, Vermont has warmly embraced thousands of college students for retreat and spiritual reflection over the last decades. As the new stewards of this serene setting, we believe it also presents an ideal location for an artists sanctuary for short and long term creative residencies that nurture original, imaginative, and prayerful work. Our mission is twofold: to foster the creation of first-class art and to nourish each visiting artist’s spiritual life. We are working to make the farm an internationally recognized center for creative and spiritual renewal, where great work – the beginning or completion of a book, score, painting, sculpture, or script – may be accomplished.
