Tent Life

6th Place 2016 Hearst Journalism Awards

Zack Troyer, a senior Plant Science major at Penn State University, decided to take on a bet with his friends that he could live in a tent on a nearby farm for his entire fall semester in State College, Pa. In August of 2015, Troyer set up his old 10 ft by 14 ft canvas tent in a small stand of woods on Meyer Dairy Farm and began to work several days a week for Denny Meyer, the owner of the farm.
