This tour will visit each of the College of Ag Sciences Research Farms at the Rock Springs facility. Farm managers will present a brief overview of the farm history, current research, and student involvement as well as try to answer participant questions.

The Farm Tours are an informal way to get a sense about what research the College is doing on the farms and why these farms are critical labs for the faculty and staff at Penn State. 

Bus leaves daily at 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.

*Note: Minimal walking involved. No restrooms available.

Prepare for your tours by visiting the short video's about the research farm area
