Student-Powered Agriculture Since 1894

The Warren Wilson College Farm is a working farm. With 300 acres divided among 25 fields in the Swannanoa Valley, we are a diversified “mixed crop and livestock” farm, with beef cattle, hogs, sheep, and poultry making up the majority of the livestock. We strive to practice “sustainable agriculture” – systems that work with nature, rather than against it.

"The farmer whose soil produces less every year is unkind to it in some way; that is, he is not  doing it what he should; he is robbing it of some substance it must have, and he becomes, therefore, a soil robber rather than a progressive farmer."                       -George Washington Carver
