UMass Student Farm

UMass Student Farm The UMass Student Farm grows certified organic produce and manages 12 acres of land, split between the UMass Research and Education Farm in South Deerfield and the new Agricultural Learning Center, located just outside of campus. The use of ecologically sound practices is a high priority, and each generation of Student Farmers continues to explore areas of growth and improvement for our environmental stewardship, while evaluating the trade-offs or benefits for our level of small-scale production agriculture. With each passing year of students at the helm, the Student Farm continues to grow dynamically, both in size and scope.

It’s with great excitement and partial tardiness, that we warmly welcome the newest member of our team, Jason Dragon. Jason joined us this past semester as Farm Manager and has played an essential role in helping us grow as farmers and as people. His knowledge, humor and passion for farming have made such a positive impact on the crew, plus we can always count on him for a good laugh.

Jason caught the farming bug during his time at Seeds of Solidarity in Orange, Massachusetts. Following this he joined a teaching program in
Boston, it was then where he figured if he was going to teach it, it was going to be outside, and it was going to be about farming.

Outside of farming, Jason is a bit of TV fanatic and always enjoys a good audiobook during his commute. When asked his favorite vegetable, he was torn between arugula and garlic. If there is one way to Jason’s heart it’s most likely with a sandwich or a donut!

Jason, we are so excited to have you and look forward to the coming seasons!

We are beyond excited to congratulate our beloved instructor, mentor, and most importantly our dear friend, Sarah Berquist, on receiving the Massachusetts Distinguished Service Award from Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest, largest, and most selective all-discipline honor society.

Sarah has been a huge presence on the Student Farm for many years. From the extensive work behind coordinating and co-founding Food for All Amherst and working closely with Not Bread Alone Soup Kitchen, to helping many students navigate their educational careers, she truly does it all.

Sarah, we are so incredibly proud of you and could think of no one better to receive this award. We are so grateful for your continued support, love, and compassion towards making food more accessible and alleviating food insecurity. Our program and community would not be what it is without you.
