Welcome to North Florida School of Special Education’s Berry Good Farms
Nestled amongst the North Florida School of Special Education’s (NFSSE) Mill Creek Road Campus lies Berry Good Farms, an urban farm featuring a wide variety of fruits, vegetables and herbs, as well as hydroponics and aquaponics, vertical grow poles, a 30×60 greenhouse housing herbs, veggie starts and microgreens, and an air-conditioned growing shed for wheatgrass. Organic practices are applied in all growing areas on the farm.
Through careful cultivation, loving hands and big dreams, Berry Good Farms has taken root in our community and grown into a self-sustaining, viable industry, providing job training and paid employment for young adults with intellectual and developmental differences who participate in NFSSE’s transition and postgraduate programs. We welcome you to come volunteer, shop, or just enjoy a tour of Berry Good Farms.
