Rogue Valley Farm to School
Farm to school programs
link local farms with schools.
This simple concept holds great potential as a solution to two of the major challenges facing our society: concerns about the diet and health of children and the dwindling of small farms. By purchasing locally grown products, schools are able to serve fresher produce to students, create new markets for local farms, and incorporate exciting programs that meet state education standards. Farms gain a sense of community involvement by impacting the lives of children and becoming involved in agricultural education, while benefiting from increased sales.
Apple Season Just Got Sweeter!
Organically Grown Company has teamed up with northwest orchards, retailers, and YOU to help fund farm to school efforts in our communities! When you buy Farm to School Apples at these local businesses, Rogue Valley Farm to School benefits and puts the funds into on-farm nutrition and environmental education in Jackson and Josephine counties. This year, the program has expanded to include multiple varieties of apples - just look for the Farm to School label! Supporting RVF2S has never tasted so sweet.
