For many years the 75-acre UAES Kaysville Research Farm looked much like other farms in Davis County, though the primary goal on our farm has always been harvesting knowledge. Today the Kaysville farm—like other farms in the state—is an agricultural oasis surrounded by housing developments. In 1991 the acquisition of adjacent land and landmark ponds along the busy I-15 corridor was the start of the Utah State University Botanical Center and a unique facility that serves all of the university’s mission: teaching, research and Extension.

Currently the UAES Kaysville Research Farm is the site of research on fruit tree cultivation, organic vegetable production, turfgrass and landscape plant irrigation requirements, fruit and vegetable production, and integrated pest management.
