Ryder Farm, SPACE's home, has been part of the Ryder family since 1795. The farm helped pioneer America's green movement in the 1970s, being one of the first New York farms to go organic. Artists in residence at SPACE have access to the entire 126-acre property which includes lakefront views, natural amphitheaters, and majestic woods, as well as outdoor and indoor rehearsal spaces, accommodations in the farm’s 1790s homestead and organic meals made from the farm’s produce.
