The CUE Farm is a one-acre sustainable agriculture project on the campus of Butler University and managed by the Center for Urban Ecology (CUE). The farm’s three-pronged mission is:

  1. To promote excellence in education and research across the University curriculum,
  2. To educate Butler University and the Indianapolis community about sustainable agriculture and the local food system, and
  3. To serve as an example of sustainable urban agriculture through the exploration of local food production and sales.

Student members of Earth Charter Butler and the CUE ‘broke ground’ on the farm in 2010. The farm has expanded over the years, with generous support from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust and Butler University. Tim Dorsey joined CUE Farm in 2011 as farm manager.For regular updates about the CUE Farm, like us on Facebook or follow us @ButlerCUEFarm on Twitter or Instagram.

Have tables, no chairs. Bring a chair!

Pitch-in lunch: Bring a favorite dish filled with food (“home-made” and/or “organic” appreciated) to share and your plate, fork, and drink.

Directions:  To access the CUE Farm, head west on 52nd Street and into the neighborhood of Rocky Ripple. After crossing the Central Canal, turn left at Lester Street. At the end of the street, continue through the gates onto Bulldog Rd., past the athletic fields and Parking Lot I. The farm is at the end of the road next to the tennis courts and across from the Butler Prairie. Park in the lot by the tennis courts or the large Lot I north of the farm.

Everyone welcome! Questions, or if lost, call Margaret Smith cell phone (contact website for phone number)
