Buildings

Horticulture Research Farm

The major building at the farm has two small laboratories, two offices, a work area, and a shop. A supporting 24’x28’ research building was built in 1995. It contains a heated 18x24’ work room, (2) 12’x12’ walk-in cooler and a 18’x24’ grading room. A production greenhouse is attached to the central work area. In the spring of 2004, a 30’x96’ high tunnel was erected to serve as a cold frame with the potential of heating it with a plastic burner furnace. We also utilize two large storage barns, and 30’x90’ and 30’x45’ machinery sheds. Separate apple and potato grading areas are provided. There is an orchard spray shed for seasonal chemical storage and tank filling. A sealed storage tank is used for sprayer tank rinsing.

Agronomy Research Farm

Buildings on the farm include a crop-drying shed, service and storage buildings, and a cereal research facility.
