The College Farm of William & Mary was active in the 1920s-1940s. According to a 1935 Alumni Gazette article, the farm was first organized in 1923. The farm was at the site of the present-day Phi Beta Kappa Hall, Andrews Hall, and Swem Library. During World War II, William & Mary operated a poultry plant to supplement the College Farm as a war measure on the site of the former CCC camp on campus, (site of present day William & Mary Hall .)
