Book & Plow believes strongly in long-term sustainability of the land and farm. What this means is that for the past five years B&P has been cover cropping, applying compost, and developing ways to increase soil health and the surrounding ecology. We follow integrated pest management and use organic growing practices. The farm is now part of the Office of Environmental Sustainability at Amherst College.
