Each week, Bethesda Academy Organic Farm & Gardens Farm Stand, which is managed by Bethesda students and staff, sells fresh produce, seasonal vegetables, herbs, free range eggs, a variety of plants, goat milk soap, firewood and more. In addition, 100 percent grass fed ground beef in various quantities are available at the farm stand, which is raised and distributed by Bethesda Academy’s Cattle & Beef Operation. Specialty cuts are also available.
Students are actively involved in planting, cultivating, and harvesting all items on-site at Bethesda Academy using sustainable, organic farming techniques. The organic farming program at Bethesda merges plant life sciences with real world applications, instilling a strong work ethic and a sense of stewardship. The farm stand at Bethesda Academy is open to the public every Wednesday from 3-5pm at the Bethesda Academy, 9520 Ferguson Avenue.
