The North Farm

The North Farm resulted from the merging of Maine Chance Farm, Spindletop Farm, and a portion of the Coldstream Farm. The land mass of the North Farm is approximately 2400 acres which provides a vast array of teaching, research and extension opportunities for the faculty, staff and students of the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture. The focus is largely on initiatives, projects, and programs in the departments of veterinary science, animal and food science, plant and soil science, biosystems and agricultural engineering, and entomology.
