Farm to School programs throughout the country aim to increase the availability of fresh produce and local foods to students.  Although many schools and school districts partner with local farms and urban gardens, we are unique:  Great Kids Farm is a public school campus that operates as a working farm to grow fresh produce which is served to students in Pre-K through twelfth grade in school cafeterias throughout the Baltimore City Schools district, and to students who come to visit us at the farm. 


Because we are a campus of Baltimore City Public Schools, we strive to engage students in every aspect of growing, harvesting, and processing the food that we send to school cafeterias.  Students participate in cultivating, harvesting, taste-testing, washing, packing, marketing, and eating our seasonal crops which have included:

  • Beets
  • Carrots
  • Watermelon 
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Lettuce
  • Sorrel
  • Kale
  • Radishes
  • Cabbages
