The Purple Carrot Farm

The Purple Carrot Farm

The student led farm has existed in many forms at the College, starting with students being required to work on the farm during food shortages in the mid 1900's. The small farm is less than an acre and has a hoophouse, a tractor, and we started construction of our first barn in 2016.

Purple Carrot Farm is a student organization with a process driven and experimental approach to small scale agriculture. We strive to engage with our school community and provide a peaceful, accessible, sustainable space.
