Our Story

In 2011, Don Bennett, founder of TCF, purchased two acres behind his house and with a coalition of community volunteers, a farm-raising movement began.  In October of 2011, the field was cleared by a volunteer force of a 119 community members. The next day our former mayor tilled the soil and this urban heritage farm was reborn. An endeavor that started with two food insecure individuals has grown to over 1,000 engaged community members.


These volunteers and talented collaborators have transformed a vision into an organization with a mission.

Tri Cycle Farms is a constantly growing community of stewards for food awareness, education and empowerment. Our farm raising, event-based approach has drawn regional and state-wide attention as we create a sustainable community urban farm model that can be replicated anywhere.
