What a great way to learn about Food, visit R2R Farm!
Tours last about 1/2 to 2 hours, on foot. Great for all ages and grades.
The US Virgin Islands’ only certified organic farm is located in the rainforest region of St Croix. Come visit and tour around the farm learning about growing food for a living, types of crops we grow, swale designs, bamboo, organic vs non-organic, farmers’ markets and more. We grow several varieties of organic fruits, vegetables, and raise livestock.
We seek to feed our islands and inspire its visitors. By protecting our watersheds with organic and peaceful practices, we help heal the land around us and the sea below.
Our primary goals:
*Feed 1% of Virgin Islands population healthy, local, organic food
*Share sustainable living & island heritage experiences
*Inspire action for a more healthy island and global community
We have two sites to choose from:
Ridge to Reef Farm
Little La Grange Farm, home of the Carl and Lawaetz Museum.
We offer customized tours for educational groups, and discount rate for school students for both sites. Not possible to do in the same day, yet worth scheduling both. We tailor the tours to each group’s time frame and topics of interest.
Ridge to Reef Farm. Here you will learn about the purpose of food and why we eat, the function of food in the body, what organic means, organic vs non-organic, the labels we see in the grocery stores and what they mean, off-grid living, watershed concepts, major crops, the seed to soil process, wild plants, local and exotic fruits, and really just space to roam in a nature environment and explore.
Little La Grange Farm. Here you will get to experience what it is like being a 21st century farm on a 18th century property. Learn about the history of agriculture, the Danish-American Lawaetz family history, as well as orchard management practices, and rotational pig farming.
We hope you join us for a tour!
