Annual Events 

The farm helps plan, implement and host two major annual events:

The Local Food Dinner brings a sold-out crowd of 250 students, faculty, farmers and community members together to celebrate local agriculture.

Every October, Harvest Fest brings boot-stomping, apple cider-pressing fun to the big red barn as over 300 students celebrate the fall harvest with live bluegrass, contra dancing, cider and handmade ice cream from Leo’s in Carlisle.

Monthly Homesteading Workshops 

Now in its third year, the Dickinson College Farm Sustainability Workshops give community members the opportunity to learn homesteading skills from local experts. Course topics include pasta making, beekeeping, backyard chicken care, gluten free baking, and food preservation.
