We grow food to feed young minds.

Who We Are

Jones Valley Teaching Farm encourages academic exploration and achievement through food, farming, and the culinary arts.

What We Do

Good School Food, our primary program, is a hands-on, food-based education model. Each year, more than 4,500 pre-K–12 students engage in the program during, after, and beyond the school day. We make learning come alive, using food as our primary teaching tool.
