Student Farming Enterprise

The UMass Student Farming Enterprise produces certified organic produce on 2 acres at the UMass Crop and Animal Research and Education Center. The UMass Student Farm is a collaboration of students and faculty passionate to learn about agriculture and food through the production and distribution of the highest quality organic produce. Our current customers include Earthfoods Cafe, Student Farmers Market, Dining Services, other student-run businesses, and the Amherst Big Y. In Fall 2013, we will provide 50 shares of local, organic produce to the UMass community.
