NCAT Demonstration Farm

NCAT Demonstration Farm, SIFT farm stand

The National Center for Appropriate Technology’s SIFT – or Small-Scale Intensive Farm Training program – aims to help communities increase their food security by producing their own healthy food.

NCAT’s SIFT is a working, sustainably managed demonstration farm on five acres at our Butte, Montana, headquarters.

This farm is the center of a program that teaches farmers and future farmers, urban food producers, community leaders, and citizens how to produce high-value, nutrient-rich food on small parcels of land. And in Butte’s case, in a challenging climate.
