The Campus Farm at Liberty University
Teaching you sustainable farming practices
Learn about agricultural principles and good stewardship at Liberty University’s Campus Farm located on Liberty Mountain in Rustburg, Va. Join students, visitors, and the local community as they explore the benefits of sustainable farming. Find out how to produce farm-fresh food while improving the environment.
The garden at the Campus Farm produces seasonal crops such as kale, tomatoes, peppers, garlic, green beans, lettuce, sweet potatoes, carrots, beets, squash, and a variety of herbs. Other Farm products include pastured, non-GMO chicken and eggs.
Food from the Campus Farm is sold at Doc's Farmers Market on campus and through a Harvest Share program, as well as served at Farmer's Field in the Tilley Student Center. The Campus Farm donates food to several local charities including the Liberty Godparent Home, Lynchburg Grows, and the Lynchburg Daily Bread.
