Members of the Urban Farming Program Visit Hornstra Farms

July 17, 2019

NORWELL, MA — Members from our Urban Farming Program visited Hornstra Farms in Norwell, MA. Members received a tour of the dairy farm, were able to see many animals including cows and goats, and received fresh, home-made ice cream to cap off a fun day at the farm.

The Urban Farming Program gives our members insight into the farm-to-table process through hands on experience and field trips around the Greater Boston Area. The overall goal of the program is to engage urban communities in building a healthier and more locally based food system.
