Roots Farm - Campus & Facilities - McDonogh School

Roots Farm


McDonogh began as a farm school for poor boys in 1873. The school returned to its roots with the creation of Roots Farm in 2008. Today, Roots is a thriving agricultural space and exciting outdoor classroom located on the edge of McDonogh’s campus. The 10-acre farm boasts two barns for equipment and learning, a greenhouse as well as 11 active beehives, a coop with 16 hens, and a turkey house with six Black Spanish Heritage turkeys. Fresh produce from Roots is served in McDonogh’s dining halls and donated to the Maryland Food Bank.
