Growing vegetables & engaging students.



 Book & Plow Farm is our fifth 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.



There are lots of ways to engage. Volunteer, intern, work study, classes, events...
