The Faulkner Farm
The Faulkner Farm, purchased by the UC Hansen Trust in 1997, serves as the main venue for the agricultural and educational activities of the Trust. The farm has an interesting history and continues to be farmed. The staff is presently growing crops for educational field trips and other demonstrations. The research area of the farm is being utilized for various variety trials (to see what does best in this soil and climate conditions) and irrigation trials. The Trust is also continuing the long standing Faulkner Farm tradition of a Fall Pumpkin Patch. The Faulkner family lived on this property for over 100 years before it was purchased by the UC Hansen Trust. The house, built in 1894, is an outstanding example of Queen Anne style architecture and is listed on The National Register of Historic Places. The imposing red barn was originally built in 1886.
