What is Farm Box?
Discovery Farm at Cal Poly Pomona’s AGRIscapes is our gateway to the community. Each year we host thousands of children on educational Field Trips, produce fun and entertaining events like the annual Pumpkin Festival and invite the public to come Pick-Your-Own produce and fruit. Covid-19 has changed all of that so we’ve created a new way to make our fresh picked veggies and fruits available for you to enjoy at home.
Chris Gendreau – Owner and Exec Chef Chase’s Restaurant La Verne
“We have been privileged to team with Cal Poly Agriculture in their Farm to Table dinners. This is where I learned about the rich earth and excellent programs that exist to teach students how to grow food. We use Cal Poly produce in our restaurant and it is spectacular - fresh makes the difference between just good and exceptional.”
Fresh is Best
Great chefs know that fresh is best. Produce grown hundreds and even thousands of miles away just cannot compete with something ripened on the plant or tree. We know that you’re cooking more at home so why not use the best? The produce in our Farm boxes is harvested the morning of your pick up, the only way to get anything fresher is to pick it yourself!
How is it Grown?
Most of our produce is grown using organic standards of production as it relates to use of chemicals. Our fields are carefully maintained by College of Agriculture students who truly ‘learn by doing’. The produce is harvested fresh for your order and the box is packed with the best of what’s available this season in Southern California.
