If you enjoy working outdoors, growing your own food, and producing food for others, or you just want to be involved with growing plants, explore your career options with the two-year AS in sustainable food and farming.  

You’ll get a basic knowledge of both plant and soil sciences, along with training in specific agricultural techniques. You’ll also enjoy flexibility in designing a personal program of study, allowing you to focus on specific crop production, small business management, or produce marketing. 

Students who are residents of Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, or Vermont are eligible for reduced tuition through the New England Regional Student Program (NERSP)

Our program’s graduates return to their family farms, pursue specific interests in sustainable or organic agriculture, or take positions with food companies, agricultural associations, community organizations, local government, and food cooperatives. 

Depending on your situation, you might also instead be interested in our online AS program for working adults.
