Apples and vegetables grown at the UVM Catamount Educational Farm are available for purchase at the Horticulture Research and Education Center every Friday starting September 1.

The mission of Catamount Educational Farm is to model sustainable farming practices through a working vegetable and fruit farm that provides educational and research opportunities for the UVM community. Students are integral in carrying out all activities of the farm, and this experiential learning environment provides them with real and diverse sustainable farm management skills. The farm contributes to the local food system of the university by marketing the student-grown produce back to the UVM community through a campus farm stand, CSA shares and a wholesale account with UVM Dining. All revenue from produce sales supports the farm so that it may serve academic and research programs on sustainable crop production.

Visit the Horticulture Research and Education Center at 65 Green Mountain Drive, South Burlington, VT, every Friday from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, from September 1 through at least November 3.
