There’s a lot going on at Fork Farms, including multiple installations at various school and nonprofit sites, curriculum development, and the first crop from the commercial farm! Check out our newsletter and see what’s growing on.
Students at Vincent High School introduce visiting middle school students from Thoreau to our Growing Machine. The Growing Machine is a hydroponic vertical growing system that we created in partnership with Fork Farms and Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin. Students from Thoreau and other middle schools visited Vincent for our Agriculture Showcase!

Seeing students engage with our technology is what makes us at Fork do what we do. Here, a student at Vincent High School Agriculture program explains to Principal Daryl Burns how the growing machine works.
This is why I do it! We had a visitor today and my students went to work. This was not planned or staged, they were in there working in there food science class and he asked them to explain the grow machine. When we engage students they pick up the mantle and do it!Vincent HS of AG!
