Urban-farming techniques have long been ignored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, as they tend to yield inedible crops of skyscrapers, Apple stores, and graphic designers carrying satchels. Prove them wrong by producing actual food in your own backyard with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of vegetable seeds, soil, chicken feed, dog or cat supplies, and much more at Urban Farm Store on Belmont Street. Urban Farm Store is Portland's only exclusive edible-plant nursery and is open seven days a week.

Urban Farm Store's storied urban farmer Robert Litt quit his job as a landscape architect to form this beloved bucolic boutique—offering the metropolitan masses a chance at their own barnyard bliss with supplies such as organic vegetables (starting at $2.95) and organic fertilizers (bulk, priced as marked). Use your digging skills for good instead of graves when you plant a fruit tree ($12.95 to $27.95). Or nurture a bountiful garden bed using organic potting soil (two cubic feet for $12), which is better than willing plants to grow by rubbing your genie-infested wishing sweater. Urban Farm Store also offers beer-making supplies, cheese-making classes, and pasture-raised meat and eggs far superior to meat and eggs conjured from thin air by starving birthday-party magicians. For the ultimate farm feat, however, adopt and bring home a baby chick ($4.95). These infantile egg producers arrive at the store on certain dates and sell quickly. Urban Farm Store also hosts free classes on basic chicken care every other Thursday at 6:30 p.m., during which they'll explain why it's better to feed chicks with organic chicken feed ($21) than molding clay and clock parts.

Sporting a barn-red exterior, the store also sells books and feed for a variety of pastoral pals, including rabbits, pigs, goats, and Jimmy Carter. Turn your manure-filled living room into fertile farmland with the right supplies from Urban Farm Store.

  • The thing I love most about UFS is their friendly, knowledgeable service. They always have answers to my questions, and when they are unsure, they know where to send me. – Steve B., Yelp
  • This is an amazing resource for the Portland gardener and square-foot, [sic] urban farmer not to be missed. From plants to seeds, from chicken to feed and lots more. – Ellen N., Yelp
