A research facility primarily focused on horticultural and agronomic crops, wildlife management, and a part of the Great Bay oyster renovation effort. The farm is the site for J. Brent Loy's extensive cucurbit breeding program, the longest-running such program in North America. The farm contributes forages for the dairy and equine programs and is also the site of the UNH Composting Facility. Daily operations are carried out by the Kingman Farm staff in concert with UNH Dining Services.
We are scientists, students, researchers and volunteers dedicated to the preservation and sound management of lakes through citizen-based monitoring and research. We provide valuable data on the lakes of New Hampshire, broad community service, local empowerment and a unique opportunity for hands-on learning and employment for students.

The facility provides highly controlled environments for a diversity of research projects, including ornamental and food crop breeding, sustainable ornamental plant nutrition and development, aquaculture, biological pest control, bioremediation, and plant genetic diversity as well as substantial undergraduate and graduate instructional activities. The greenhouse environments are monitored and precisely regulated through a computer-based control system that creates a sustainable growing environment through the conservation of heat, electricity, water and fertilizer, and increased plant resistance to insect pests and diseases.

NCVDE is a regional center for the study of environmental, evolutionary and climatic factors that affect bacterial pathogens in coastal waters and shellfish. The Center’s goals are to enhance research, education and outreach on the risks and management strategies of climate-induced changes in the pathogenicity of naturally occurring bacteria (e.g., Vibrio species) in coastal ecosystems, in order to better respond to public health threats.
The Northeast Consortium was created in 1999 to encourage and fund effective, equal partnerships among commercial fishermen, scientists, and other stakeholders to engage in collaborative research and monitoring projects in the Gulf of Maine and Georges Bank.
