University Farm Supplies Both Its Dining Halls and Local Zoo With Produce

Case Western Reserve sends several hundred pounds of produce to Cleveland Zoo each week from its Squire Valleevue Farm.

Case Western Reserve University’s Squire Valleevue Farm, which provides food for campus dining halls, is now also making deliveries to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The zoo's weekly orders include 57 pounds of endive, 78 pounds of dandelion greens and 209 pounds of romaine lettuce, and plans call for dedicating 20 of the farm's 277 acres to producing hay for the zoo as well. The Farm Food Program was established in 2009 with the help of campus dining services provider Bon Appetit Management Co., but CWRU has owned the farm property since 1919.
