The Tara Firma Farms Institute (TFFI) was founded with a clear goal: to educate our friends, families, and communities about their local food shelter, share and develop techniques for proper animal and pasture management, and to promote knowing your farmers!
The Institute has been proud to host over 10,000 visitors on free tours of Tara Firma Farms from its inception. We have spread awareness, held workshops and classes for our community, and held events and fundraisers for ours and other non profit organizations. The journey continues in 2017 with our mission to create the Knowledge Bank, a teacher's go-to resource to educate their classes and communities about small farms, environmentally sustainable farming, and the social and political climate surrounding our food infrastructure.
The Institute offers free tours of Tara Firma Farms at 11 a.m. every Saturday & Sunday.
Private, guided tours for Schools, Non-profits, and Community Groups are available by reservation year round depending on availability.
