Program Information

In 2012, The Farm Food Program (FFP) broadened its horizons with the addition of two successful CSAs and the introduction of a weekly Farmers Market that started in June. University Farm Staff and summer VISTA Associates, Amanda Langhals and Caitlin Hearn, helped to run the summer Farmers' Market at Wednesday's "Barbeques On The Quad", hosted by Bon Appetit. During the fall, the Farm relocated to the BRB lobby near the café for a three-hour market on Thursdays.

With the success the FFP has had in its first CSA and market season, both programs continued to grow and expand. In 2013 and 2014, markets were held twice per week, once at CWRU's own Biomedical Research Building and then again at the First Baptist Church in Cleveland Heights. In 2015, the farm had the opportunity to distribute more of its produce to campus dining facilities and other vendors. Therefore, markets were no longer a weekly occurrence, but were still present at the annual Farm Harvest Festival and other large events.

As NE Ohio farmers, we are dependent upon the growing conditions and a finite growing season of this region. At the Farm, we have attempted to extend our growing season through use of a greenhouse, and two high tunnels, but late fall through early spring are still slow-producing seasons. Like most local farmers, our peak production occurs from midsummer to early fall.

Moving into the 2017 growing season, we will no longer offer a CSA program as the FFP expands to focus on sales to BonAppetit and local restaurants in the University Circle and Cleveland Community areas, as well as serving restaurants close to the farm.

More information will appear on the Farm's social media pages as it becomes available.
