The Farm at Butler
On a one-acre plot of land, The Farm at Butler is an ongoing sustainable agriculture project that serves a wide range of roles on campus and in the community.
It aims to teach people about growing produce using methods that are healthy for both humans and the Earth. It promotes research and place-based learning, and through the lens of food, it provides opportunities for students across all disciplines to connect with science in a meaningful way.
Since 2010, The Farm at Butler has been a place for people to connect with the world and one another.
Butler’s self-taught Farm Manager brings a fresh perspective to growing food.
The Farm goes beyond just sticking to organic methods, taking cues from nature to create a diverse space.
As The Farm shifts to a primary focus on education, classes across the Butler curriculum find ways to use the space.
The Farm at Butler leads educational tours for local organizations, up-and-coming farmers, and students of all ages.
Selling produce across campus and the nearby community, The Farm promotes healthy eating and top-notch flavor.
