Cornell University established the Freeville Organic Research Farm in 2001
to serve as a site for interdisciplinary research aimed at optimizing
organic vegetable production systems for the Northeast. It is managed by
the University's Department of Horticulture The farm comprises 30 acres
adjacent to the Homer C. Thompson Vegetable Research Farm.

Now in its fourth year of organic management, the farm's first formal
research projects are beginning this season. They include a potato trial,
rotation study, tomato trial with different potting mixes, cover crop demo,
and buffer planting.
