OUR STORY

Mud College Farm is a certified organic grower located in Gettysburg, near Two Taverns. Our mission is to sustainably grow healthy local food for the Gettysburg area, and to be a catalyst for community and education.

 

Our owner and main farm labor is Ben Mearns, a native of Gettysburg, who made a career change from software development and data analysis, to return to farming and land stewardship with a community focus.

 

We are a small family farm – growing on 2 acres once farmed by Ben’s father and mother as part of their dairy operation, where his grandparents lived. We also manage 8 acres of conservation land.

 

Our name comes from a nearby historical site, which also lent it’s name to the “Mud College Craft Guild”, of which Ben’s grandmother was a part.
