Transport and Parking
Walking: Book and Plow Farm is about a 15 minute walk from the center of campus. You can walk through campus to the Tennis Courts, and then follow signs onto Farm Rd, a gravel road past campus materials piles and construction parking, that leads to the farm Core Site. There is also access via just off the bike trail or through our Sanctuary Trail System.
Driving: If you want to drive to the farm you can take that same Farm Road, or you can drive up the hill from a second entryway at 425 South East St. If you are interested in booking vehicles to travel to the farm, you can reserve vehicles via the Amherst Virtual EMS site. We can accommodate about 2 dozen vehicles around our grass parking area, and there is more space for parking further up Tuttle Hill.

The Pavilion is a brand new space on campus that is wheelchair accessible, with one designated accessible parking space. We also newly have an accessible port-a-potty on site. The road up to and around the farm is gravel.
