About the Farm: The farm sits on a 6.7 acre plot and features vegetable patches, peach and apple treats, and corn. An on-site hoop house, tractor, and work shed are all used by the all-student garden crew to grow and harvest the crop sold at the local farmer's market and area restaurants, with a chicken coop providing the community with farm fresh eggs. This living classroom offers endless unique opportunities for authentic, hands-on learning.
