The Blandford Farm is beautiful 10 minute walk west of the visitor center where we focus our education on the production of food. Our farm is a living example of how many small farms work and we offer programs to witness how our food is grown and taken from the field to your plate.
We grow over 40 different vegetables and over 300 varieties on our 2.5 acres. We also have a greenhouse where we grow food throughout the year and start all our plants for the season. Our animal residents include chickens, bees, and goats that help us graze in the field, pollinate the flowers, and offer entertainment.
You can be apart of what happens on the farm by joining the CSA, sending your kids to summer farm camp, saying hi to the goats, or purchasing our produce at the farmer’s market.
We follow organic and natural practices in all that we do on the farm. We strongly feel that using organic practices are important in promoting healthy bodies and a healthy environment.
You can find us and purchase our produce at Fulton St. Farmer’s Market every Friday from May through October and on Saturdays in the spring and fall.
If you’re looking to put in a garden at your own home, you can purchase your plants from us. During the month of May, we will be at the Fulton St. Farmer’s Market and the Downtown market on Saturdays with an array of vegetable plant for sale. We offer everything from tomatoes and peppers to broccoli and herbs. They are all naturally grown in our greenhouse. See you at the market!
Since 2010 we’ve been growing our farm. Today, Blandford Farm consists of 7 acres where we focus on sustainable agriculture to grow healthy, chemical-free produce and educate and engage families and students. In the future we hope to add more animals, fruit, and opportunities for learning about how food is grown and arrives at your plate.
We currently have a 4000 sq ft greenhouse donated by the Prein family where we grow produce year round and start many of our plants for the farm. We also grow produce in two other structures for more season extension crops.
We grow over 40 different types of vegetables and over 200 different varieties of vegetables. As we grow, we plan to incorporate more fruit into the farm to continue to create a diverse farmscape.
