Miller Farm: Update

 

Earlham College has a long history of engaging with agriculture as a means of experiential education and of sustainable living and learning exploration for students. The Miller Farm program, in operation since the 1970s as a not-for-credit residential student cooperative, was originally located on land about a mile southeast of campus along Abington Pike. The program was moved from that location in August 2013 after a review identified safety concerns with several of the farm’s outbuildings.

Miller Farm is now located at the large field south of the Suzanne Hoerner Equestrian Center, an 11-acre area that may expand as projects grow.
