Dilmun Hill Student Farm

Welcome to Dilmun Hill. We are a student-run farm that has been practicing sustainable agriculture on Cornell University's campus for more than a decade. Our mission is to provide students, faculty, staff and community with opportunities for experiential learning, group collaboration and research. Throughout the year we host work parties where volunteers work in the fields and experience the latest in sustainable ag practices. The student managers and steering committee members collaborate with the Organic Coordinator and Faculty Advisor to provide leadership in farm operations and  disseminate information through education and outreach. We also collaborate with various organizations on campus, such as MacDaniels Nut Grove (MNG). Our popular campus farm stand offers Dilmun Hill produce for sale from June through October and we supply local produce to Cornell Dining and Manndible Café in season.

Happy 20th Anniversary, Dilmun Hill Student Farm

New high tunnel to extend growing season

The production-scale high tunnel does not only extend the growing season at Dilmun Hill, but also serves as an educational resource for the many classes that visit the farm. It is mounted on rails, so that the tunnel can be easily moved between two different growing areas. Learn more
