Who we are


SCROLL DOWN

Who we are


Ground Floor Farm is a food and community space in Historic Downtown Stuart.

Our aim is to help grow a more dynamic and resilient town through food, art, and fun. We are part (sub)urban farm, part experimental kitchen workshop, part arts and events venue, part banquet hall, part open-source community space. Yes, those are a lot of things for one business to be. We want to nourish Stuart with excellent food, practical and interesting know-how, and enriching cultural and artistic experiences. We want Ground Floor Farm to be as varied, vibrant, and expansive as our beautiful home town. So come; eat, learn, and enjoy. Make this space your own.

What we do


What we do


Agriculture and Food Production

We grow vegetables, fruit, and herbs for sale directly to the community. Our agriculture follows small-plot-intensive (SPIN) and permaculture techniques. We adhere to organic and sustainable practices, focusing on building rather than depleting soil. We prioritize heirloom, native, and ecologically appropriate varieties of crops.

Cultural and Educational Programming

We facilitate a range of public programming to serve the diverse needs of our local community, from family festivals to night markets to art events. We also create a variety of educational programming for both adults and children, building confidence and getting folks active in the kitchen and garden.

Space Rental and Community Space

With our downtown location, unique urban farm setting, and ample parking, our facilities are ideal for a variety of rental events. We welcome private events, such as business meetings, parties, and weddings. Additionally, we offer space for groups and individuals to host activities open to the public, such as art exhibits, performances, yoga classes, and film nights.
