Scattergood Friends School Farm


West Branch, Iowa
Family Farm

The Scattergood Farm is a place of wonder and variety: on any given day, students might see chickens clucking and laying, calves playing, peppers reddening and squash curing. Or perhaps they will be actively involved in sowing, transplanting, weeding or watering. All these things help make possible the Farm's three primary objectives: to provide the school with organic fruits and vegetables, as well as residue-free meat and eggs; to offer students and teachers a living laboratory and outside classroom to stimulate growth and learning; and to connect Scattergood with nearby friends and our extended community. In the past year the Farm supplied Scattergood with over 1000 dozen eggs, 4000 pounds of organic produce, and several tons of apples made into sauce and cider. The farm was incorporated into many classes, including Biology, Advanced Biology, General Science, Social Studies, and Drawing. We sold hundreds of pounds of excess produce to New Pioneer Cooperative in Iowa City and the West Branch Natural Market.
