Future Farmers: Green Mountain College

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.
