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.

Students of the Farm Food Safety Course held May 2 at Dakota College in Bottineau, were treated to a tour of the greenhouse and several styles of hoop houses by instructor Keith Knudson. The classes are a cooperative effort of FARRMS and the ECH at Dakota College in Bottineau in an effort to encourage good ag practices when growing food for farmers.
