Our Agricultural Goals & Practices

We believe that soil, plant, animal, environmental and human health are interconnected and that agriculture is the base of a healthy culture and civilization.

The Farm is a food center that supports:

  • operating economically and environmentally sustainable agricultural enterprises
  • integrating a working farm with educational programs and cultural activities
  • building a sense of community around food - connecting people and schools with local farms
  • networking among farm-based education organizations

Our practices include:

  • grass-based farming and composting
  • minimizing erosion and water pollution
  • promoting livestock health through good nutrition and sanitation, and low-stress handling (Our dairy is Certified Humane.)
  • enhancing wildlife habitat
  • producing renewable energy
