Troy Community Farm

We have been growing certified organic food on Madison's northside since 2001, and we are proud to be the city's first urban farm. Our production focus is on intensive hand-scale techniques that make the most of limited urban spaces. We also emphasize reduced fossil fuel inputs by growing starts in our passive solar greenhouse, cultivating only with wheel hoes and hand hoes, and using carefully managed cover crops, mulch, and crop rotations to improve soil productivity. In addition to growing vegetables, herbs, and sprouts for our 160 member CSA and 10 local groceries and restaurants, we also strive to grow future farmers though our internship, worker share, and volunteer programs. Our internship program in particular is designed to provide a solid foundation in organic agriculture with a combination of both formal classes and hands-on work in the field. We currently work with 12 to 14 interns each year and have trained more than 75 interns since 2002.
