Welcome to the Fauquier Education Farm
The Fauquier Education Farm, a 501(c)(3) organization, was created in 2010. The original plan of establishing a community farm was initiated by the Fauquier Community Action committee in 2009. In 2010 a new non-profit organization was established to further develop a program of agricultural education and the growing of fresh produce for lower income residents.
The work of the Farm is led by the Fauquier Education Farm Executive Director.
The Virginia Co-operative Extension office in Fauquier County plays a critical role in the operation of the Fauquier Education Farm (FEF). Extension staff members serve as advisors to the FEF board and to the Director. The Farm, located on Fauquier County property on Meetze Road, serves as a laboratory to pilot new techniques as well as to provide continuing agricultural education to interested citizens.
