The Food Love Project
The Food Love Project is an educational farm that was established in 2010 through the Living Lands Agrarian Network. The farm is devoted to promoting nutrition education, food security, and community involvement in growing, harvesting, eating, and celebrating fresh food! We provide experiential field trips, service projects, and classroom visits to local schools.
Directions: You can find the Food Love Project farm by taking N Bloomfield Road from Hwy 49, and turning left on Lake Vera Rd. Look for the Burton Homestead on the left hand side, #16200, right before Excelsior Ditch Rd. View a google map and get custom directions here.
