This year we have established a centralized location for produce sales and delivery. For the 2018 growing season, sales and delivery location will be the courtyard behind Curtiss Hall (east side entrance) and the Harl Commons. We hope to gain greater visibility with this location, as well as customer appeal and food safety compliance. We would like to thank Dr. David Acker for allowing our vision of a centralized location to exist. 


Produce pickup will continue to be on Fridays, from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM. We look forward to the fourth season of sales! Please check back with us often for new and seasonal produce.


Products available for purchase are sourced by various Department of Horticulture research projects, student internships, and multi-department student organizations (Good Earth Student Farm). All produce for sale is grown at the Horticulture Research Station and is harvested fresh.
