The Dickinson College Farm adds a unique aspect to Dickinson's well-rounded liberal-arts education, providing plenty of opportunities for hands-on learning. Situated a few miles from campus, the College Farm is a beautiful 80-acre, USDA-certified organic farm that offers students a living laboratory for learning about renewable energy, sustainable agriculture, complex mathematics, the role of food in global politics, public art, Buddhist philosophies and much more.
The College Farm is not only sustained by students, for students, but it allows members of the Carlisle community to join in and enjoy the plentiful, nutritious bounty. Every Wednesday during the warmer months, you can find fresh produce at the College Farm tent during the Farmers on the Square farmers' market.
