Farm Tour Opportunities at the Boulder JCC this Summer

Milk and Honey Farm is a 2+ acre educational sustainable farm located on the campus of the Boulder JCC. The farm brings the community together for experiential programs and activities grounded in Jewish heritage, tradition, and values. It provides a place for individuals to connect on the simplest level with soil, plants, animals, and people. We grow over 4,000 lbs of vegetables, most of which are donated to those in need. Our farm also houses chickens, goats, a greenhouse with koi fish, and a full children’s garden.

Milk and Honey Farm is actively used by Cherryvale Day Camp and the Early Childhood Center, as well as being a program space for many Early Learning and Parenting classes. Because of this, the Farm is not generally available for drop-in visitors. To accommodate all the interest in this amazing farm, the Boulder JCC is offering several opportunities to visit during the summer. These tours will be tailored toward an adult audience.

On Thursdays, June 22, July 27, and August 31 from 5:30 – 6:30 pm come to tour the Milk and Honey Farm at the Boulder JCC. The free program will take place rain or shine. Advance registration is required to make sure we can accommodate all our visitors. 

Visitors will have the opportunity to see our flourishing plants, animals, art, and micro-organisms. In addition to the vegetables, flowers, goats, greenhouse, bees, and chickens we always have, this summer we are adding two special additions:

1) A new composting system installed with help from Eco-Cycle. This aerated static pile creates quality compost in a short amount of time through forced air. We’re honored to partner with Eco-cycle to help showcase effective composting systems and process our own organic waste into a valuable soil amendment.

2) An art installation by Future Farmers through agriCULTURE, an experimental collaborative exhibition put on through a partnership with The Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art and the Longmont Museum. The exhibition has served as an incubator to generate new work related to land, food, water rights, sustainability, climate change, technology, and cultural heritage. The works that emerged from the collaborations inspire visitors to think about their own connections with the natural world in new ways.

Our farm is a community resource, an educational farm, and a working farm. If you would like to visit the farm outside of a JCC program, please contact Farmer Becca or Farmer Rachel
