About the Farm

Graphic with the words JCCC’s Campus Farm is located on roughly 2.5 acres in the Northwest corner of the main campus. 

The purpose of the farm is two-fold: to provide a hands-on educational experience for the Sustainable Agriculture program and to provide locally grown, chemical-free produce to the specifications of JCCC’s Dining Services and Culinary program.

During its development, the farm has provided educational opportunities for sustainable agriculture and culinary students. It has provided many opportunities for a wide range of disciplines to make farm visits and integrate some of the farm’s practices into their own curriculum. The Native American Studies program is in their third season of growing on dedicated farm grounds.

Currently, we have a variety of seasonally appropriate plantings in place. Throughout the 2014 growing season, we will continue to plant over 80 separate varieties of more than 30 different crops.
