Projects and Programs

Over the years, the Cable Community Farm has offered a wide array of programs and educational opportunities to bring our mission–grow food, build community–to life

The Vegetable of the Year campaign began in 2015 as a riff on the “one book, one community” idea with a goal of inspiring people to grow some of their own food. Packets of seed, along with growing instructions, are given away at local businesses and at the Drummond Elementary School.  Thanks to our Local Business Heroes, who support the Vegetable of the Year project!  Artwork created by local artist, Mimi Crandall.

Past Community Projects

The Community Chicken Coop began in 2014, with a group of community members calling themselves the “Chicken Tenders” communally caring for a flock of laying hens.  The hens produced 3,915 eggs in 2015!

Beekeeping is an important part of supporting farm pollination. In past years, community members have established and maintained bee hives in a farm-based apiary.
