Jones Valley Teaching Farm is not just a place where delicious food grows
— it's a place where young minds blossom.

Our mission, put simply, is to make our community a healthier place. And our focus is empowering future generations with an education to eat smarter, think healthier—and live better.

Snapshots of Jones Valley

The crew transplanted our first round of fall veggies into the field this week- it won't be too long before we can enjoy lettuce, kale, and cooler weather.
Please don't pout! Our farmers are taking a break and won't be @pepperplacemarket tomorrow. See y'all next week!
Aly made a friend in the basil.
Surprise chicks!
Teaching Farm Fellow David Meadows is harvesting cucumbers for @pepperplacemarket. Other crops to look for at market tomorrow include: figs, peppers, beans, and flowers!
If you've driven by the farm lately, you may have noticed the fields are looking bare. We've been busy sowing our fall crops in the greenhouse and will start transplanting the fall bounty next week!
