Who We Are

Our Mission

The mission of the Friends of the Kennedy Martin Stelle Farmstead is to restore, preserve, and operate the Kennedy Martin Stelle Farmstead as Farmstead Arts Center, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit center for fine, performing, and practical arts.

Our goal is to build community through the arts and make Farmstead Arts a major force in the New Jersey arts community.

The Friends of the Kennedy Martin Stelle Farmstead was founded in 2004 and has worked to preserve this historic site dating back to 1717.  The Friends worked to restore many of the buildings on site and in 2010 the Farmstead Arts Center opened its doors.

Farmstead Arts is home to a center for fine, performing and practical arts offering art classes, workshops, art exhibits, as well as annual programming which includes concerts, theater performances, classes, art exhibitions, and special events.
