TROY Farm

Proud to be Madison’s first organic urban CSA

Troy Farm is a vegetable production and education project of Rooted. The farm has been growing certified organic vegetables on Madison’s Northside since 2001, and we are proud to be the city’s oldest urban farm. Troy Farm sells produce to farm members and other Madison residents at our on-site farm stand on Thursday evenings and at the Northside Farmers’ Market on Sunday mornings. We also teach small-scale, organic growing practices and explore the role of urban farms in local food systems and community organizing through our Urban Farmer Training Program.

PLEASE NOTE

If we are still experiencing restrictions due to COVID-19 in June, Troy Farm will adjust our membership distribution model per the recommendations of public health officials. This may result in drop-off and pick-up sites of pre-packed veggie boxes or other options. Rest assured that as a farm member, you will receive your fresh vegetables from June-October.

Farm Membership

The majority of the food we grow enters the community through our farm membership program. Members join the farm in the spring and receive fresh organic produce throughout the growing season (June – October). In addition to fresh, USDA Certified Organic produce grown in our urban farm, members have access to our u-pick flower garden, bulk purchasing, and the weekly Troy Farm newsletter.

Membership Q&As

Individuals and families who sign up for membership commit to the farm for the growing season. This helps us cover the initial annual costs of the farm operation and helps us plan our production. In return, members will receive fresh organic produce throughout the harvest season (June–October), have access to the u-pick flower garden, and support our mission to increase access to land-based education and fresh food for all of our neighbors. If you live in the community, we want to be your farmers!
Farm members choose a credit amount for their membership. Come June and throughout the harvest season, you spend that credit at the Troy Farm Stand or at our booth at the Northside Farmers’ Market. You select what you want, when you want it, and you support our efforts to improve access to fresh food and land-based education for all of our neighbors. Farm Stand Credit Options
  • $150 – for an individual or couple
  • $300 – for an individual or couple that really loves veggies or for a family that also grows some veggies in their own garden
  • $450 – for a small family
  • $600 – for a smaller family that loves to eat vegetables or for a larger family
