Sewanee: Farm to Table-Virtually

Sewanee's University Farm fosters a transformative experience of personal development for students through an immersive and intimate practice in restorative agriculture. With a 13,000 acre campus it's no surprise that Sewanee students and the University at large are concerned with issues of sustainability and environmental stewardship. As the largest food service in the region, Sewanee Dining also embraces sustainability as a core component of its mission and an important consideration in how it approaches its operations and services. Come and learn how Sewanee lives out it's farm-to-table philosophy.
