Duke Campus Farm Catalyzing positive change in the food system


Hello, Duke Campus Farm visitors!

Our website is still under construction due to some much-needed makeovers in the design and content departments. You’ll still be able to find some basic information here about who we are and what we do.

About Us:

The Duke Campus Farm is a one-acre working farm dedicated to catalyzing positive change in the ways we grow, eat and think about food. By using sustainable methods to grow fruits and vegetables we provide a living laboratory for all things food related at Duke and beyond.

Since DCF was founded in fall 2010, it has grown from a student project to a working farm providing thousands of pounds of produce each year to campus dining halls and CSA members, working with classes across the academic spectrum, exposing hundreds of students and community members to the joys and hard work of growing real food, and starting and forwarding conversations around the impacts and opportunities of our current food system. To see just how far we’ve come in the past few years, check out our Annual Reports. For more information about where we’re going, see our Five Year Strategic Plan.

Upcoming Programs and Deadlines:


Volunteer Workdays:

Open Workdays are closed for Final Exams/Winter Break, but will resume on January 11th. Enjoy some rest this winter!

Check out our Facebook page for up-to-date information about Farm workdays and events and follow us on Instagram (@dukecampusfarm). Facebook is also where you’ll find any day-of changes to the usual work day schedule due to weather, etc.
