Chances are you have passed by Penn State’s one acre Student Farm without even knowing it.
“The farm site is located at a really interesting intersection of 322 and cow pasture," Leslie Pillen said. She points to the highway nearby. "So you have large trucks – semis – driving by on one side and cows – sometimes horses, too – on the other.”
Pillen is the coordinator of the new Penn State Student Farm. Coming from Nebraska and having a master’s degree in rural sociology, she plays an essential role at the farm.
