From Farm to Cafeteria Table

Rogue Valley Farm to School is committed to connecting local schools with local farms. We are happy for the opportunity to partner with Ashland School District in meeting their goals to improve school lunches and increase student participation. When done well, a thriving school lunch program can ensure all children receive healthy, fresh lunches.

The Crest at Willow-Witt is an educational organization on the 445 acre Willow-Witt Ranch in Southern Oregon. This beautiful home consists of forest, wetland and an organic farm with vegetables, goats, chickens and geese. They cultivate connection between people and the sources of food, forest and water for all ages. 
 
Harvest of the Month:
