Welcome to the Berea College Farm Store, an experiential learning laboratory for undergraduates in local food systems and value-added agriculture.
The Berea College Farm is one of the oldest continuously operating student educational farms in the United States. It raises a wide variety of fresh vegetables, fruits, herbs, grains, beans, mushrooms, honey, pork, beef, chicken, goat, fish and more – all produced by students gaining hands-on farming experience while working their way through college. Much of the cropland is USDA certified organic and the Farm maintains animal-welfare certifications on several of the livestock enterprises.
In 2013 the College opened Farm Store in the renovated, historic Broomcraft Building located on the edge of campus, adjacent to Farm. It’s equipped with a kitchen and meat-processing room and offers foods produced by the College Farm as well as products from nearby farms and small businesses in the central Appalachian Region and throughout Kentucky.
Your purchases at the Farm Store support sustainable agriculture education for students with strong academic potential and financial need.
