Spring Valley Student Farm is home to 11 undergraduate students who live in two houses (of 4 and 7 student residents) on the farm. Each student contributes ten hours of farm chores per week, including weekly farm meetings. Students live and work together and treasure the family atmosphere of Spring Valley.

Many Spring Valley student farmers are deeply inspired by their experiences at the farm and develop lifelong passions and skills. We open applications whenever spaces become available, usually every semester.
