The campus has two Laboratory Farms. The Campus Lab Farm is included in the Institutional Boundary and is approximately 130 acres in size and supports primarily our Horse enterprise. Another approximately 40 acres supports our Horticulture as well as Environmental Science and Forestry Projects.
The Mann Valley Farm is located 2.5 miles NW of town is approximately 475 acres and is home to our beef, dairy, sheep, and swine operations.
A Farms Master Plan was began in 2013 and is anticipated to be wrapped up in early 2014. It should guide all future evolution of the farms and their programs with an approximate 20 year horizon. There is a strong sustainability theme weaved into the overall plan, including renewable energy (solar, wind), storing stormwater and land use management.
