Naturally Grown Produce
Local agriculture sustains vibrant communities. That’s why we’ve incorporated farmland on the Red Barn campus. Our farmers will produce crops and raise animals without relying on chemical pesticides, synthetic fertilizers or practices that degrade the soil, water or other natural resources. By growing a variety of plants and using techniques like crop rotation, cover cropping, livestock husbandry and minimum tillage, our urban farm is working to protect this special ecosystem.
Volunteer at the Farm
Red Barn Farm needs extra green thumbs. We’ll be growing lots of fruits and vegetables and would love for you to come out and get your hands dirty. Sharing information and teaching others about farming is a huge goal of ours. We’ll have regularly scheduled volunteer days that will include planting, harvesting, seeding in the greenhouse, washing produce, refreshing beds, and much more. Start volunteering with us this summer and get connected to the soil.

Farm Fresh Goodies
Fresh Ingredients Onsite
Red Barn residents will reap the benefits of farm fresh ingredients just steps from their front door. We're growing and selling a wide variety of produce year-round as well as seasonal eggs, honey and fruit.
Rotational Farming & Grazing
Rotational grazing involves moving livestock to different pastures to prevent overgrazing and encourage grass growth. Crop rotation includes growing different crops in the same area for sequenced seasons to increase soil fertility and reduce erosion. Sustainable farming techniques like these promote animal welfare and protect the environment—causes near and dear to our hearts. It’s why we’ll be moving goats and chickens as well as garlic and other crops around the Red Barn property year after year.
True Farm to Table
Living at Red Barn means you have direct access to locally grown produce. How’s that for closing the farm-to-table gap? We encourage you to take part in this farm-centric community and get to know your farmers. Enjoy a walk around the farm or a stroll through the flowers. Farm dinners, yoga, music and workshops will be right outside your door.
Pollinator-Oriented Honeybee Apiary
One out of every three bites of food we eat is a result of pollinators like honey bees. Honey is among the tastiest delivery systems for vitamins, enzymes and antioxidants. Bees are so important to sustainable agriculture that we’ve decided to keep an observation hive in the actual red barn for educational purposes.
