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.
All produce from the farm is sold on campus to students, faculty, and staff through the farm cart as well as the Dining Hall. Growing, harvesting and all work on the farm is led by a few student farm interns hired every year, with many dedicated student volunteers and support from Buildings & Grounds.
