The Farm at Stonehill

The Farm at Stonehill is an initiative of The Mission Division at Stonehill College and is being developed to enrich students' academic endeavors - providing students with the opportunity to actively engage in social justice issues pertaining to food in neighboring communities while also helping to make available fresh, nutritious, locally grown food to local food pantries and meal providers for families and individuals in need.

Our vision for the Farm will be achieved through the following ways:

  • Utilizing 1.5 acres of Stonehill College land to farm and grow nutritious fruits and vegetables,
  • Inviting the entire campus community - students, faculty, and staff - to help out with all levels of farming,
  • Connecting with food pantries, meal providers, and social service agencies in nearby areas to provide them with fresh and nutritious foods, and,
  • Encouraging the ideals of wellness and sustainability.
