Welcome to our educational farm
The O'Donohue Family Stanford Educational Farm is Stanford's living laboratory for hands-on learning in sustainable agriculture. We utilize agroecological relationships and natural diversity to grow over 200 varieties of vegetables, flowers, herbs, field crops and fruit. Students come to the farm to test new ideas about the biological, social and environmental aspects of farming and gain experience in the practice of sustainable agriculture. On-farm research spaces also provide faculty and students with hands-on learning opportunities agroecology, engineering, and more.
If you would like to experience the farm, we encourage you to visit during our general operating hours on Mondays through Fridays from 8:00am- 6:00pm and Saturdays from 9:00am-5:00pm. Or attend one of our bi-weekly volunteer opportunities (with required registration). Register to Volunteer
