Spring Valley Student Farm is home to 11 undergraduate students who live in two houses (of 4 and 7 student residents) on the farm, about 4.5 miles from campus. Each student contributes ten hours of farm chores per week, including weekly farm meetings, in exchange for discounted housing. 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, skills, and friendships.

If you are interested in living at the farm, please sign up for our housing email list with this short Google form! We will share news about upcoming info sessions, deadlines, and housing resources.
