College Woods is located on the west side of the main campus. It comprises approximately 250 acres of woods, streams, and small fields. College Woods is the oldest and most intensively used University property for education, research and recreation. It is not uncommon to see walkers, runners, and classes all in one brief stroll through the woods.

This NHAES/COLSA facility is representative of a typical New England Dairy operation, thereby developing new knowledge and management expertise geared directly to many state and regional stakeholders. It houses about 90 milking-age cows and approximately 70 growing, replacement animals. Included in that number is the 20-cow, student-managed CREAM herd (CREAM is the acronym for Cooperative for Real Education in Agricultural Management), with the remaining animals devoted primarily to research in the area of dairy nutrition and reproductive biology. The facility relies heavily on student labor - during the academic year there are typically about 40 students working part-time at the farm at any given time, either as hourly employees or as participants in the CREAM program. In addition to its primary research focus, the farm receives large numbers of visitors and hosts a number of public programs each year (e.g., School to Farm Days). Milk production currently averages about 26,000 to 27,000 pounds per cow per year for the CREAM and research herds.

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 the extensive cucurbit breeding program, the longest-running such program in North America, and emerging research on sustainable forage production, agricultural soils, and pollination services. The farm contributes forages for the dairy and equine programs. Daily operations are carried out by the Kingman Farm staff.
