Scattergood Friends School and Farm sits on over 100 acres, 35 acres of that is Scattergood Farm and of that farmland, 10-acres are certified organic.  The Farm serves as a living laboratory for various classes and projects as well as providing the Scattergood community with the majority of food eaten in the dining room.  At any time of year, The Farm is teeming with life with close to 200 animals and over 140 different types of produce including everything from broccoli and Brussels sprouts to kohlrabi and  edamame.  Each year the Farm explores different varieties and breeds to determine what types best serve the needs of the Scattergood community and its surrounding partners.  This year alone, the Farm grew over 45 different types of tomatoes and more than 8 varieties of lettuce.  After all Scattergood's needs are met, excess produce is sold to the New Pioneer Cooperative in Iowa City as well as various other small farmers' markets. 

The Farm is a regular part of a Scattergood student's day.  On any day, students might take part in a farm crew, be responsible for gathering eggs, eat and prepare locally grown food, take farm data for a science lab, or walk over to visit the baby pigs.  The Farm is also an important feature in the Scattergood academic curriculum, providing students with real-world examples as a way to understand key concepts.  It has been incorporated into many classes including Biology, Advanced Biology, General Science, Social Studies, and Drawing.   Having a school farm allows us to engage students through the use of an outdoor classroom in which they can learn about the world around them and see the relevance of class subjects to their environment.
