Book & Plow Farm is our sixth season of vegetable production; formerly a farm in residence, we are now a department of Amherst College. Our mission is threefold. Engage students in collaborative and productive farm labor. Provide quality produce to the Amherst College community. Offer people space on campus to connect with food, land, and each other. Our produce is available at Valentine Hall through Dining Services and through a weekly CSA share in the Fall.
Come to the farm to spend time outdoors, work with your hands, observe, ask questions, speak up, and work on a team. The farm is not for racism, classism, ableism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, nor any derision or discrimination based on identity. The farm is a space for people to build community around growing vegetables.
Book and Plow sends out a monthly newsletter with updates about what's going on at the farm, events that the farm or friends of the farm are putting on, recipes, articles of interest, musings, pictures, etc. Want to sign up? Click here and we'll add you to the Newsletter List.
