The Fox Chase Farm is an agriculture education facility hosting more than 30,000 visitors each year. The farm is a campus of the Philadelphia School District, serving all of Philadelphia school students and surrounding counties. The Agriculture Education Department at the Fox Chase Farm serves as the hub of agriculture education for the school district, engaging Pre-K through 12th grade in agriculture experiences. The farm is owned by the city of Philadelphia, and managed by the Philadelphia School District. The purpose of the farm is to educate the school children and families of Philadelphia about agriculture through hands-on experiences, on the farm and through the classroom. In the course of a year school children visit the farm as a field trip opportunity, school engagement events and through the Agriculture Empowerment Program. The Philadelphia School brings the experience of agriculture into the hands of the public first hand.
