Long Lane Farm is Wesleyan University’s student run organic farm devoted to allowing students a place to experiment and learn about sustainable agriculture.
This summer, seven students are tending the two-acre farm full-time. New to this year’s farm are Rhode Island red hens, who reside in the farm’s chicken coop. The coop was designed and built by Wesleyan’s Architecture II class in 2013.
Pictured, Catherine Walsh ’16 handles a young hen July 14 at Long Lane Farm. The hens will start laying in fall and supply Bon Appétit and Wesleyan’s Dining Services with fresh eggs.
