The Student Farm

The UMass Student Farm grows certified organic produce and manages over fourteen acres of land, split between the UMass Research and Education Farm in South Deerfield and the Agricultural Learning Center, located on North Pleasant Street just north of the Amherst campus.  The use of ecologically sound practices is a high priority, and each generation of Student Farmers continues to explore areas of growth and improvement for our environmental stewardship, while evaluating the trade-offs or benefits for our level of small-scale production agriculture.  With each passing year of students at the helm, the Student Farm continues to grow dynamically, both in size and scope.
