EUSD proudly holds the honor of having the first CCOF certified organic farm owned by a public school district in the nation. We supply over 12k pounds of organic produce annually for salad bars and scratch made lunch items at all nine schools. You can learn more about our farm to school program here.
As we've grown, we've shifted from traditional organic farming practices to a full regenerative agriculture model. We received our Real Organic Project certification in 2021. The way we farm produces more nutrient rich food and sequesters higher levels of carbon. We are literally mitigating climate change by how we grow food for student lunches.

We minimize our footprint on other ways on our farm. Food grown on site is washed, packed in reusable crates, and sent directly to our central kitchen (less than 3 miles from the farm). We have also integrated water conservation practices across the site.
