The Farm at Stonehill is a place for students to get their hands dirty. An initiative of the Mission Division, the Farm supplies local food banks, soup kitchens and other meal providers with organic, sustainably grown fruits and vegetables; helping to make nutritious, local food available to neighbors in need.
The Farm challenges the status quo and asks students to actively engage food justice issues in the surrounding community. Located on 1.5 acres of college-owned land directly adjacent to campus, the Farm is a living endorsement of our commitment to the greater good.
During the growing season, the Farm distributes produce through four organizations:
- My Brother’s Keeper
- The Easton Food Pantry
- The Table at Father Bill’s and Main Spring
- The Family Center at the Brockton YMCA
The Farm is an inviting place where the entire campus community assists with all levels of farming, from planting seeds in the spring to putting the fields to bed before the first frost (and lots of weed-pulling in between).
