Harvest Fields Organic Farm is a certified organic farm located on the campus of Fresno Adventist Academy, in southeast Fresno. Their acreage is split among four acres of navel oranges, eight acres of field-grown fruits and vegetables, four greenhouses, and a very happy flock of 70 pasture-fed chickens. Established in January 2014, Harvest Fields was born with the desire to unite the two causes of agriculture and education. We live in a time when many say fruits and veggies just “don’t taste like they used to,” and when there are more Americans in our prison system than there are in farming (less than 1% of the population). Even if just in a small way, they hope to change both of those things, and believe there’s no better place to start than with the youth in America.
While the farm’s growing practices are focused on flavor and nutrition, not just on quantity or uniformity of size and color, their partnership with a local K-12 school is aimed at proving that farming can be a powerful and transformational educational tool. Ooooby is very proud to support this farm along with all our other local farmers.
