Do you offer tours? If so what can I expect?

Please watch our calendar for information about upcoming public tours. Occasionally we do not offer on-going tours (typically in the summer) and tours must be scheduled by appointment only. Tours can last anywhere from 20-60 minutes. During the tour you will learn more about the past, present, and future of the farm, as well as more information about our facilities and farming practices.

Can I bring my class for a field trip?

The Stanford Educational Farm currently only offers field trips for Stanford University courses. If you would like to bring your undergraduate or graduate class for an academic field trip to the farm please contact Patrick Archie at

We work with a very small number of elementary and high school classes through our undergraduate education program and are not able to offer field trips for high school classes at this time. We highly recommend Hidden Villa, the HEAL Project, and Veggielution.

How do I buy flowers or produce?

Currently a majority of the food grown at the farm is sold back to campus entities and is not regularly available for personal purchase.

Flower arrangements come in mason jars, small (16oz.) and large (64oz.). At this time we are only providing service Monday through Friday on the Stanford Main campus. Delivery is available for a small fee. To place an order or for more information please fill out the order form.

I have feathery or furry pets that need a new home, will the farm take them? 

Unfortunately, the farm is unable to take on any additional animals.
