The University Farm
Chico Agritourism & Locally Grown

The 800-acre Paul L. Byrne Agricultural Teaching and Research Center (ATRC), more commonly known as the University Farm, helps Chico State agriculture students put classroom concepts into practice. The ATRC has not only been a benefit to students, but also to farmers and ranchers benefiting from research conducted on the farm as well as Chico grade-school students who have long enjoyed field trips to the farm.

Touring the Farm

  • Reservations are recommended but not required. Call 530-898-3737 to reserve your space on the tour.
