The Homer C. Thompson Vegetable Research Farm, also called Freeville Farm, is located 10 miles from the Cornell campus. It is is a primary location for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences' historically important vegetable research. Freeville Farm serves several departments, including Horticulture, Entomology, Plant Breeding and Plant Pathology. The 260-acre farm includes a 30-acre parcel for the Freeville Organic Farm. Well-known by local citizens, the farm is popular for its "field days," which give local commercial farmers and amateur gardeners the chance to learn about state-of-the-art planting and best management practices. The farm is managed by CUAES as a site for interdisciplinary research aimed at optimizing vegetable production systems for the Northeast.
