No life like the farm life

The Pierce College campus is the only community college in the surrounding area that has a farm. Courses taught on the farm allow students to learn and to gain hands-on experience applicable to real-life situations.

There are different animal units on the farm that house sheep, goats, cows and chickens.

The purpose of these classes are to teach students how to feed, clean and maintain the farm and its animals.   

According to the course description, Animal Science 596, the agricultural enterprise projects course is a lab opportunity for students that “involves planning, developing and completing an individual or group animal or crop production project under the guidance of a faculty advisor on the College farm.”
