We are a nonprofit, certified organic sustainable vegetable farm where people with and without disabilities come together to work, learn and grow healthy food. We provide meaningful employment for adults with developmental disabilities in the context of our sustainable vegetable farm, providing fresh local produce to our community through our CSA, Farm to Group Home and Farm to Food Bank programs. We also provide educational and service learning opportunities for youth and adults around sustainable farming and environmental stewardship.
