The Blandford Farm is a 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.
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.
Since 2010 we’ve been growing our farm. Today, Blandford Farm consists of 2.5 acres where we focus on sustainable agriculture to grow healthy, chemical-free produce. Additionally, we educate and engage families and students through our farm related programs.
In the future we hope to add more animals, fruit, and opportunities for learning about how food is grown and how it arrives at your plate.
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.
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.
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.
You can find our produce for sale at Fulton St. Farmer’s Market.
