The College Farm offers fresh, naturally grown, local produce to the Davidson College community through the college's Dining Services operation, an on-campus farmers market, and a CSA program. The farm is a stand-alone, business-based unit of the college.
We engage Davidson students, faculty, and staff to enhance educational opportunities and create a collaborative and innovative environment for curricular and co-curricular activities that support local farming.
Located on Grey Road in Davidson, our initial production is situated on a three-plus-acre site on land known as McIntosh Farm. In 2008, the college purchased a total of 109 acres from the McIntosh family.
The farm grows naturally—no synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. All seeds are certified organic, non-GMO, and/or open-pollinated heirloom varieties. We have a 16-foot x 42-foot propagation greenhouse, and two 30-foot x 96-foot high tunnels that allow year-round growth.
Our production includes lettuce, spinach, greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, squash, melons, strawberries, beets, carrots, blueberries, herbs, and cut flowers.
We are located at 1603 Grey Road in Davidson. Please call 704-430-8687 to schedule a visit.
