More about the Small Farm Unit:
The Small Farm Unit covers approximately 30 acres with a wide range of soil types, equipment, buildings, and educational focal points.  The function of the unit is to model a systems-based approach within a whole farm context.  Embedded within the farm design are ongoing research projects in systems rotation and other production topics relevant to small farm stakeholders.
In a typical season, the Small Farm Unit produces up to 100 varieties of specialty fruits and vegetables targeted for niche markets and diverse consumers’ preferences. All farm produce is donated to local community organizations, food kitchens, and shelters. Farm transplants are grown in a greenhouse including several specialty plants.
The Small Farm Unit also includes a 15-acre certified organic area and a model GAP (Good Agricultural Practices)-certified postharvest handling area.
