The Campus Farm
Chris McGinley, Director

“One of many added values of a Sayre education is its city location, and curricular ties to downtown are abundant. Sayre’s faculty likes to think of the downtown as an extension of our campus. I like to think of The Sayre Athletic Complex and Sayre Farm as our second campus – a place where generations of Sayre students will not only compete in their favorite sports, but also study science and agriculture and economics, and come to a deeper understanding of the globe and our collective mandate to make it a better place to live.”

~ Stephen Manella, Head of School


Apple Orchard

In Fall 2015, the classes of 2023 and 2024 planted 100 apple tree saplings of nine varieties with the assistance of members of the University of Kentucky Agriculture College's Sigma Alpha Sorority. The harvest will be incorporated into products made by Lower School students for consumption by the Sayre community.

Peppers & Blackberries Planting and Harvesting

Sayre Farm Middle School students raise peppers and blackberries from which they make blackberry jam, hot pepper jellies, and pickled jalapeños. These products are marketed to Sayre parents every year at the Fall Festival.
