The Dilmun Hill Student Farm is a student-run organic farm that has been practicing sustainable agriculture on the Cornell campus for more than a decade, fostering community and empowering students through engagement in eco-friendly agriculture. Some of the farm’s educational offerings include hosting work parties where volunteers can work and experience sustainable agricultural practices. In addition to educational opportunities Dilmun runs a farm stand that offers organic fruits and vegetables from June through October to our campus community, as well as provides seasonal produce to the campus dining facilities.
