OUR MISSION
The Cal Poly Organic Farm seeks to provide educational opportunities in organic and sustainable agriculture on an on-campus farm that serves as the center of a thriving network of producers and consumers.

Currently CPOF hires approximately 15 part-time students from over 10 different majors and has 20 volunteers. If you are interested in working or volunteering at the farm contact us!

CPOF encourages school groups and others to visit our farm. We offer a 1-hour exploration tour with farm activities such as planting, vermicomposting, composting, and harvesting. Contact us for more information.

Welcome to the Cal Poly Organic Farm

The Cal Poly Organic Farm (CPOF) provides students and the community a place to experience and explore organic and sustainable farming and gardening techniques. Furthermore, it serves as a classroom and laboratory to several Cal Poly courses and research programs.

Faculty, staff and students jointly manage and steward the farm. The farm is also supported by grants, community members, the Horticulture and Crop Science Department and the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences.

CPOF is 11 acres that are certified organic by California Certified Organic Farms. The acreage is composed of one central location and several production fields on campus. Find Us.

A Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program is the main sales avenue for CPOF produce. The CSA movement, as well as CPOF’s CSA, has grown phenomenally over the last 5 years. CSAs promote local agriculture and encourage a direct farmer-to-consumer relationship. To learn more, or to subscribe, please visit our CSA page here.

Additionally, CPOF produce is sold on campus to students, at the Campus Market and to other university-based eateries. A goal of CPOF is to increase the amount of local and organic produce consumed on campus and to increase the overall awareness of the local agricultural economy.
