About the Program

Friends of Local Foods was formed in the fall of 2006 to bring concerned students, faculty, and community members together to raise awareness, create academic opportunities and conduct research related to local food systems and food quality.  Out of this effort, with the support of several members of the MSU community, grew the Towne's Harvest Garden project, a 3+ acre diversified vegetable farm. 

Towne's Harvest Garden not only produces vegetables, it is the start of a larger project that promotes community building and individual empowerment.  Our goal is that the THG farm will offer valuable hands-on education for the Bozeman community by promoting learning about food production and the value of eating and supporting local foods. 

MSU student, faculty and staff as well as community members are very welcome to visit and volunteer at the garden.  Volunteers will be rewarded for their efforts by stress reduction through physical work, joyful camaraderie and fresh vegetables.  Email us to find out about volunteer dates and times.

Why Towne’s Harvest?

The name of the garden connects the history of the land to the present.  Towne is the surname of one of five farmers who used to own land which was eventually deeded to MSU.  The land where the Horticulture Farm and the Towne’s Harvest Garden is located has been nicknamed Towne’s farm for several decades.  The piece of land which became the garden actually belonged to E. Broox and the Ella Martin Farm.  It was deeded to MSU in 1909.

Towne's Harvest will continue to be good stewards of that farm so that future generations of Montanans can grow food on this land. 

What is a CSA?

A CSA (community supported agriculture) membership is a mutually beneficial relationship between small farms and community members. A member helps support a farm in the beginning of the season when funds are low by paying upfront for a summer’s worth of produce. The farm is then able to sustain itself through the early season until markets become more profitable and they are able to break even. As a member, you will receive a weekly supply of vegetables from our farm, and as much generosity as the farm managers and interns can offer! Towne’s Harvest is a educational research farm. Therefore, we greatly value member’s involvement and feedback as we try to create a model for small scale producers in the state. Shares will include numerous types of produce including peppers, potatoes, carrots, basil, parsley, onions, tomatoes, green beans, peas, broccoli, salad mix, beets, cucumbers, squash and much, much more! This year we will be offering some new options for you to choose from. If you have any questions, recommendations, or need assistance filling out your member agreement, don’t hesitate to contact Towne's Harvest Garden’s Marketing Manager via email at @
