Welcome to North Dakota Farm to School’s official site. North Dakota became recognized as a farm to school state by the national Farm to School organization in 2009.
With the assistance of a North Dakota Department of Agriculture Specialty Crop Block Grant, we are creating this site for networking farmers and food service, education and examples of farm to school programs like the one in the video above.
If you wish to learn more about Farm to School or would like to be in the directory or connected to a farmer or school, please contact the North Dakota State Farm to School Lead by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
