Summer 2013 at Kentland Farm

We’re in the thick of our 5th season farming at Kentland Farm.  Through a partnership between Virginia Tech Dining Services and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, in 2009,  the Dining Services Garden at Kentland Farm Project was born.

With two Co-Farm Managers and between 10 -15 dining services staff and countless hours from volunteers, locally grown fruits, vegetables and herbs are being grown and served in Virginia Tech Dining Services.  Produce from Kentland Farm is served in all of our dining units but during the school year is given priority to the Farms and Fields Project in Owens Food Court.  Farms and Fields highlights organic, sustainable and locally sourced foods.
