Kingman Research Farm
Evan Ford, 603-868-2345
The 360-acre Kingman Research Farm is located in Madbury, about two miles from the Durham campus. Its primary function is as a research facility, with current projects including research on horticultural and agronomic crops, wildlife management, and a part of the Great Bay oyster renovation effort. The farm also has been the site for J. Brent Loy's extensive cucurbit breeding program, the longest-running such program in North America. Part of the farm contributes forages for the dairy and equine programs.
This farm also is the site of a new greenhouse aquaculture research facility and the UNH Composting Facility. A large portion of this farm is forested and it is used extensively by the community for hiking, mountain-biking and other recreational activities. UNH Cooperative Extension uses the Farm for demonstration and to extend new information to growers and the public as quickly as possible.
Directions: Kingman Research Farm is located on Knox Marsh Road (Rt. 155), across from the Madbury Police and Fire Department, 3.1 miles from the Durham campus.
