Investment In Just Food!

The time is now. Students across the nation want to know where their food is coming from, why it isn’t satisfying, and how their pre-purchased food is being produced and prepared. At the Bard Farm, we are answerings these questions by providing Bard with delicious organically grown produce from right on campus! Our location provides hands-on education in sustainable urban farming and is a hub to celebrate food and local culture.
Having first broken ground in 2012, we have come a long way. Our sales to Chartwells are in full swing, but our prices remain low to out-compete major distributors who sell to Chartwells. We take pride in our college farm being basically a break-even-business, but we still need capital to grow. Like the donor-funded barn raising pictured above, now is the time to think big and longterm. With Bard’s acquisition of 350 acres of land at Montgomery Place, we now have the opportunity to expand and grow more than our usual 20,000 lbs of food each season!
Future ideas are grazing laying chickens, big grow-outs of vegetables to be frozen for winter months, major greenhouses for growing greens year round!
Please consider giving today, thanks and good luck on your growing season!
