The Bard College Farm
This student-operated organic farm on the Bard campus sells produce to the College's dining service provider, works to educate students about food systems, and connects Bard to the regional agricultural community. Worked by students, the farm, with its visibility and its accessibility, demonstrates the realities of small-scale farming and creates a community of food and farm culture.
