The farm has become a thriving operation with an annual harvest of more than 10,500 pounds of sustainably grown produce.
The 12-acre Ullem Family Campus Farm and Center for Sustainability features multiple crop fields and a greenhouse for year-round growing. A multi-purpose center for sustainability is used for teaching and educational resources; food preparation and processing; and farm outreach programming.
The farm has become a thriving operation with an annual harvest of more than 10,500 pounds of sustainably grown produce for DePauw University dining and local hunger-relief organizations. It positions DePauw as a national leader in innovative education related to sustainable agriculture, food and energy for rural and urban settings. It is a laboratory for scientific and entrepreneurial experimentation where students, professors and community members develop models for solutions that conserve natural resources.
The Farm is located between DePauw’s athletic facilities and the DePauw Nature Park, west of the indoor tennis and track facility. If traveling by car or bicycle, take Jackson Street to Walnut Street, go west on Walnut, turn south (left) into the farm immediately after the railway crossing, and follow the signs.
