Real Food Farm grows lots of fresh, healthy, real food and people often wonder where it all goes. Our top priority is making affordable produce available in the neighborhoods around Clifton Park. We do this through our Mobile Farmers’ Market, neighborhood markets, as well as our partnerships with other community organizations.
Real Food Farm also operates a Community Supported Agriculture program where you can sign up at the start of a season to receive a box of fresh produce each week.
Check out this month’s harvest: We are currently harvesting edamame, eggplant, squash, zucchini, basil, cherry and slicing tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, cucumbers, and mint!
We aim to operate and demonstrate a financially sustainable urban farm, so Real Food Farm also sells to Baltimore restaurants, caterers, educators, hospitals, and other institutions. We also sell at the 32nd Street Farmers’ Market in Waverly as part of the Farm Alliance. At full production, our goal is to sell 60% of our produce to community residents and 40% to restaurants and other institutions.
As an urban farm, we acknowledge that urban soils can contain pollutants related to the land’s former use. At Real Food Farm, we are continually testing for soil contamination and will keep consumers safe by managing crop rotations based on plant uptake ability. Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
