Farm & Agriculture Resource Management Stewards
Offered in cooperation with the Vermont Technical College, the Farm and Agricultural Resource Management Stewards (FARMS 2 + 2) degree program enables students to make a seamless transition from dairy farm or agribusiness management at VTC to a second two years at the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at the University of Vermont. Advanced material relating to the courses taught at VTC is offered at UVM through one of two majors, Animal Science or Agriculture and Resource Entrepreneurship. Successfully completing one of these majors leads to a Bachelor of Science Degree in either Animal Science (ASCI) or Community Development and Applied Economics (CDAE).
Also, students spend a semester at Miner Agricultural Research Institute which provides a "total immersion" that focuses entirely on the real problems of managing a dairy farm. Students live at the Miner Institute in Chazy, New York for the spring semester of their Junior year.
