Welcome to the Chester Agricultural Center

Our mission is to help grow an equitable and inclusive regional food system. We see a future where land is affordable to diverse, aspiring farmers, where food is accessible to all, and where we respect and steward the unique soils and eco-system in our care.

Our mission and vision come alive through our work which includes:

Our land lease program • Regenerative agricultural practices for the Black Dirt • Support for language justice • Support and training for farm workers • A space for community convening, learning and celebrations • Creation of an innovative housing model for farmers, farm workers and visitors.
