Foundation Farm is now 10 years old.  Its 60 permanent beds are tended by a crew of school trainees ranging from 2 to 5, and by volunteers who come at will throughout the season.  The work is entirely manual with a lot of raking, mulching, transplanting and of course harvesting involved.  The only machines heard on the farm are a neighbor's tractor for an occasional brush-hogging (around our perimeter) and push=-mowers for keeping the grass down around our beds.

Our full-on regular season extends from early March (first direct-sowings, early production of transplants), till late November for our last "outdoor" harvests.

Our winter season extends through the balance of the year through the use of 4 high tunnels.

The farm school season extends from mid-March to the end of October.

Our weekly load is structured simply with 3 half-days spent in the field: Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  We work typically for 5 hours straight during the most desirable part of the day: 8am to 1pm in spring, 7am to noon thereafter. 

We love to see customers or others come and join us at the farm for a bit of work or just for lunch (on working days).  Please do come and visit. For directions to the farm send us an e-mail.

We participate to 2 Farmers' Markets: The Eureka Farmers Market on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, and the Fayetteville Farmers Market on Saturday mornings.
