Universities for Food Lovers
From prize vineyards to massive crawfish boils, colleges across the country are luring students with food- and wine-centric courses, programs and perks.
The Vermont school’s Farm & Food Project aims to reconnect students with the origins of food and how they as individuals relate to the environment. Students take part in every aspect of growing, harvesting and selling produce from the wind- and solar-powered Cerridwen Farm, in addition to raising livestock, tending beehives and butchering sheep, chickens and pigs. No tractors or diesel-fueled vehicles are used, rather two oxen—who go by the names Bill and Lou—help plow the land. greenmtn.edu
