Welcome to Book & Plow Farm !
Book & Plow Farm is returning for its second season of producing high quality, organic vegetables, working with college students, and building up depleted soils. The 2014 season is being built off of last year's successes: 4 acres of vegetable production, 4 summer interns, 7 acres in soil building cover crops, 1 freshly built greenhouse, and almost 20,000 pounds of food. Book & Plow Farm plans on increasing some of these numbers. We are growing 10 acres of vegetables this year, co-facilitating classes at Amherst College, hiring up to 8 summer interns, expanding the Work Study Program, experimenting with tomato sauce production for the dining hall, and planning to produce more than 100,000 pounds of local, organic produce. Stay tuned to hear about the progress.
