The Clemson Calhoun Fields Student Organic Farm (SOF) has been redesigned and is undergoing a transformational process creating synergy and harmony between farm elements. The SOF project is devoted to the demonstration of sustainable farming practices and the production of organically grown crops including seasonal vegetables and fruits, herbs and cut flowers.

 

There are approximately five acres of certified land in production at the farm comprised of annual and perennial crop areas, edible and medicinal landscape installations, passive solar greenhouse and high tunnel production areas, cover crops and a network of rainwater diversion and aquaculture ponds.
