Farmers are innovators.
Some of your favorite Tampa market farmers are starting a new project — Joe Dalessio, Kristin Beauvois, and Travis Malloy will be combining brains and teaming up to bring Tampa Heights its first urban farm.
Opening in 2020, Meacham Urban Farm will be a high-yielding, bio-intensive farm accessible to the surrounding neighborhoods. Our goal is to inspire community engagement in the local food system and instill a commitment to organic, healthy, environmentally conscious farming.
The foundation of this project is agriculture and food education for students, neighbors and any interested humans!
Joe, Kristin, & Travis
Right now, we are in the "processing phase" with the city... which means contracts and permitting are being put in place to ensure that this project is successful, becoming a hub in the center of the Tampa Bay agriculture and food community.
In the meantime, we are farming 4 acres at Sweetwater Organic Community Farm and another 1 acre in Lutz at Black Finger Farm. Rest assured there will be plenty of fresh, organic, local produce for the start of season in October!
So for now, sit tight, and read up on the “Latest News” and our vision for growing food at Meacham Urban Farm!
