welcome to big hill student farm!

Hello!  Welcome to Adventures at Big Hill, a blog following the development of Big Hill Student Farm.  Big Hill is a new student-initiated project at Gustavus Adolphus College in Saint Peter, MN.  As of this moment, our farm-to-be land is under a beautiful layer of snow, but we are busy working on planning, coalition-building and grant-seeking.  

Our mission is create interest in sustainable agriculture, food security and ethical eating here on campus.  We will do this by farming a diverse assortment of fruits and vegetables on about 1-acre of land behind the school Arboretum.  We are interested in making this operation as bio-intensive and holistic as we can, so we plan to have chickens and composting, among other things.  

That's all for now.  Coming soon: meet-the-farmer profiles and farm project updates!

May the sun shine kindly upon you (and your crop!),
