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 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 Advisors 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 CafĂ© in season.

CSA shares are now available

Want some delicious veggies? Want to support Dilmun? Then join our summer CSA!

In Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), members pay at the start of the season for a share of the farm's harvest and pick up vegetables once a week. See the flyer for more details. If you would like to sign up for a CSA share, please email us at dilmuncsa@gmail.com. We would love to make this opportunity available to everyone, so we welcome groups to sign up for a CSA to share. 

We will also be offering a few work-for-share positions which you can apply to through this link.

The Dilmun Hill Barn Project

This exciting project is led by an interdisciplinary team of students, supported by faculty and university staff. The team is in the final stages of designing a new barn for the farm and completing the architectural drawings, before construction can begin in the summer. Learn more and follow the progress

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
