UD Fresh to You
Fresh to You Farm Stand
UD student interns operate a UD Fresh to You farm stand every Wednesday this summer from 4 to 7 p.m. at the UDairy Creamery flagship location (535 South College Ave). Stop by each week this summer for fresh tomatoes, peppers, squash, melons, corn and much more—all grown right on the UD Farm in Newark.
UD Fresh to You is a student-run farm located on the University of Delaware South Campus that provides organically grown produce to the university and local community. The farm consists of nearly 3 acres including four high tunnels that help to extend the growing season. Fresh to You operates a farm stand that is open to the community during the summer months and also delivers produce donations to the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center, Food Banks of Delaware, and The Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP). The farm has a CSA (community supported agriculture) program for university employees to help increase access to fresh, locally grown produce throughout the year. The Fresh to You farm acts as a living laboratory for students and interns to learn, gain hands-on experience with organic and sustainable farming practices, and become more connected to where their food is coming from.
Fresh to You is looking for student interns who are interested in working on the farm! This is your opportunity to learn about vegetable production up close. Interns will participate in all aspects of the farm including propagation, crop maintenance, harvesting, farm stand sales, insect pest management, and more. Internships are available for Spring, Summer, and Fall 2022, and you do not have to have any previous vegetable growing experience to apply! Follow the link below for more info, and to express your interest in becoming a Fresh to You intern!
Community Supported Agriculture Program
Fresh to You is piloting a student-run community supported agriculture (CSA) program for University of Delaware employees. Students and leadership in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources will offer delicious vegetables to the University community weekly during the fall and spring semesters. Fresh to You markets will resume Summer 2022! Check our facebook page, @UDFreshToYou for updates.
