Hampshire College Farm

The Hampshire College Farm is a working farm and thriving educational center, providing agricultural programs for the College, local community members, and school groups.

Expect More from Your Food

With an eye toward the cultural, sustainable, and nutritional aspects of food production, the Hampshire Farm is dedicated to educating future generations of healthy, ethical food producers and consumers. The Hampshire Farm won't just teach you how to farm; it will teach you how to farm for the future. And you'll learn to eat well, too.

Academics at Work

From studying animal behavior to agriculture, Hampshire students in a wide variety of fields use the Hampshire Farm as a hub for investigating the intellectual, political, and scientific issues surrounding food production.

Internships and Work-Study Opportunities

Learning at Hampshire doesn't end in the classroom. Students here live their educations and, with the internship and work-study opportunities at the Hampshire Farm, can grow their educations from the seed to the table and beyond.

Visitors are Welcome

Visitors and volunteers are welcome to tour the Hampshire Farm and are encouraged to get involved. As we are a working farm, certain production areas of the farm do have limited access.
