Visit Information

A researcher giving a tour of the BioCentury Research Farm.

If you are interested in visiting the BioCentury Research Farm, we would be happy to talk with you about our research projects and take you on a tour of our facilities. We can accommodate individuals, small groups (less than 25 people) and large groups (more than 25). A typical tour lasts approximately 60-90 minutes.

Requests for tours should be made at least 2 weeks in advance of the desired date in order to allow us to make necessary arrangements. Every effort will be made to accommodate tour groups, but the BCRF reserves the right to decline a tour if there are scheduling conflicts, or insufficient notification time for necessary arrangements.
