Visitors are welcome at the ISU Research Farms. Field days are held with organized programs for the public. Tours can be arranged by contacting the farms in advance. Farm contact information is available on each farm's page.

If visitors arrive at the research farm unannounced, they are encouraged to call the farm office or the farm superintendent on arrival.

Note: The research farms, as part of Iowa State University, do not allow smoking, or hunting/fishing/trapping on their premises.
