Open House: Middlebury College Organic Farm 

The Middlebury College Organic Farm (MCOF) is a student organization that stewards a three acre plot of fruits, vegetables and perennials. The Farm serves as a space that supports the holistic development of students by providing life skills, while promoting discourse surrounding pressing world food issues. The produce they grow reflects a balance between efficient, profitable crops and more labor intensive, less productive crops grown for educational purposes. While planting rows of lettuce for Atwater Dining Hall or contemplating coursework in our outdoor classroom, students not only come to understand the problems with industrial agriculture, but they also explore and help develop local, organic solutions.

In the field a half-mile behind Bicentennial Hall. Walk or drive down the hill (going West) from the college on Rte. 125 for a half-mile. Take a right at the wooden sign that reads "Middlebury College Organic farm". If you are driving, you can leave your car at the sign and walk the short dirt road to the farm.
