Worden Farm is an
85-acre certified organic family farm in Southwest Florida, founded and actively
run by Chris Worden, Ph.D. and Eva Worden, Ph.D.
organic produce is available directly to the local community in season, Fall
through Spring, at farmers markets and through a community supported agriculture (CSA)
farm membership program. The farm produces over 50 different varieties of certified organic vegetables,
fruits, herbs, and flowers, without conventional pesticides or synthetic
fertilizers. Sustainable, ecological techniques are used to conserve resources
and protect soil and water resources, wildlife, and human health.
The farm is community-oriented, with a full seasonal calendar of
events, including tours, workshops, and farm feasts. Worden Farm hosts an apprenticeship program, in
which people come from around the world
to learn about organic community farming. Worden Farm's consulting
services help fellow farmers to succeed in organic crop production and marketing.
Worden Farm has received media recognition in many national, regional,
and local outlets, such as The NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams, America’s Heartland on PBS,
American Farmer, Florida Grower, and Florida Travel+ Life.
