UMass Dining chefs love receiving beautiful, fresh Student Farm produce twice a week in the dining commons and students love eating it. UMass Dining is so grateful to Student Farm for providing our community with sustainable, nourishing food grown with such care.
Jason Silverman is the UMass Student Farm Manager. Jason started as a student in the program in 2011, marking this season his fifth working with Student Farm. Jason has “always been an agriculture enthusiast” and is deeply connected to his work. Jason has an innate passion for what he does, saying that he has been “obsessed with hay production since the age of two and a half.” Growing up with such love for food and farming, it is no wonder he is so good at what he does.
Jason spoke highly of Student Farm and the experience it gives UMass undergraduates to “become true farmers.” Student Farm is a “tight-knit family” with “a great community dynamic."
