Is the farm an organic farm?
The farm is not a USDA Certified Organic farm; however, we grow using USDA Organic practices.
This means we:
- use only cover crop and organic inputs to improve field fertility
- spray minimally using only sprays allowed in Organic production
- till minimally to reduce damage to the soil
We are certified instead through the USDA Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) program, which ensures that our farm is safe and sanitary.
Where is the farm?
Go south at the intersection of Lincoln Ave and Windsor Rd. Continue south on the gravel road until you see the purple sign (left) and gate to your left. Here's a map.
When can I visit or volunteer at the farm?
Sign up to volunteer here. Visitor hours are Monday through Friday, 8am-12pm and 1pm-4pm . To set up an organized visit for a class, organization, or community group, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I buy produce grown on the farm?
We do not sell the produce at the farm but we sell seasonal produce from May-November, Thursdays from 10:00am-2:00pm on the Quad side of the Student Union. Time is subject to change; check this website for actual hours as we get closer.
Can I get free produce for volunteering?
Potentially, if you come on a harvest day, culled produce (not marketable quality, but totally useable) will be available to take home. If you are interested in produce when you come, feel free to ask us, we can see what might be available.
