The 40 Best College Farms


The 40 Best College Farms

College Ranker has put together a list of what it considers the 40 Best College Farms based on the following criteria:

* Hands-on experiences
* Student involvement
* Community outreach programs
* Workshops, classes, and lectures
* Volunteering opportunities
* Degree plan options

Montana State University made the list, but not where we would have put it!  The Arthur H. Post Research Farm strengths were listed as it's dedication to the purpose of developing new wheat and barley varieties, cropping systems research, increasing seeds through Foundation seed and studies on how to control weeds in small grains. The major focus of the Post farm was listed as plant breeding programs.  

Check out the list and let us know what you think!
