At the organic farm, we want to understand the challenges of making organic food more accessible, more affordable, and better tasting.
The Middlebury College Organic Farm (MCOF) is a student organization that maintains a 3-acre plot of fruits and vegetables. The produce we 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, we not only come to understand the problems with industrial agriculture, but also explore and help develop local, organic solutions.
We are located west of Middlebury College on Route 125. Our customers range from the Middlebury College dining halls to local restaurants and delis, and include Weybridge House, the College’s environmental studies academic interest house.
