Founded in 1955, agriculture was a key component of Blue Mountain Academy school program. BMA operated a farm and dairy through the mid-90’s when it shut its farm down due to financial difficulties. In 2012, the school board voted to return to its roots and restart its agriculture program. Starting with a couple of greenhouses and a small vegetable garden, this program has expanded to include, laying hens, approximately 3 acres of veggie gardens, berries, herbs, orchards, herbs, bees, hay, and grain crops. In 2017 a portion of the farm became certified organic, and in 2019 the remaining fields were certified as well.
