Worden Farm is an 85-acre certified organic family farm in Southwest Florida, founded by Chris Worden, Ph.D. and
Eva Worden, Ph.D. in 2003.
The farm's organic produce is available directly to the local community in season, Fall through Spring, at farmers
markets and through a community supported agriculture (CSA) farm membership program. The farm produces over
50 different varieties of certified organic vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers, without conventional pesticides or
synthetic fertilizers. Sustainable, ecological techniques are used to conserve resources and protect soil and water
resources, wildlife, and human health.
The farm is community-oriented, with a full seasonal calendar of events, including tours, workshops, and farm
feasts. Worden Farm hosts an apprenticeship program, in which people come from around the world to learn about
organic community farming. Consulting services from Worden Farm help fellow farmers to succeed in organic crop
production and marketing.
Word has spread about Worden Farm, through coverage in many national, regional, and local media outlets, such as
The NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams, America’s Heartland on PBS, American Farmer, Florida Grower, and Florida
