Welcome to Bertrand Farm
Bertrand Farms includes two educational farm sites in Michiana. Our mission is to connect people to local food production in a way that promotes healthy farming, healthy eating and earth stewardship. We provide project based education for all ages. This web site gives you the opportunity to learn more about us and our programs.
2018 brings new and exciting educational opportunities to the local community as we partner with area schools to bring an Urban Agriculture Learning Center to Downtown South Bend.
Our rural farm site, Niles, Michigan, just 1/4 mile north of the Indiana state line, spans nearly eleven acres. The grounds include an active barnyard with small livestock production and up to five acres of organic vegetable and perennial fruit production using a permaculture design.
New this year is our three-acre urban farm site located on the school landscape of Good Shepherd Montessori School in Downtown South Bend, IN. Working in partnership with several local schools we are partnering to bring an Urban Agriculture Learning Center to the Michiana community. Look for farm programming at this new site spring 2018.
