The Body Farm is a series of crime fiction novels by American authors Jon Jefferson and Dr. William M. Bass under the collaborative pen name of Jefferson Bass. Although the series is fictional, the forensic science used in the series is very much real. The Body Farm series is helping to increase interest in forensic investigations in criminal cases involving the remains of the human body.

The Body Farm series began in 2006 when Jefferson and Bass had Carved in Bone published. Since that time, there have been six more books in The Body Farm series. Below is a list of Jefferson Bass’ Body Farm series in order of when they were originally released:
