The FAMU Research and Extension Center, also known as “The FAMU Farm” has begun expansion near the 4-H Pavilion and Lake Fredrick. Thanks to the Renewable Resources Extension Act (RREA) Project under the leadership of Dr. Lawrence Carter, FAMU Extension Director of Outreach Activities, the expansion includes a nature trail and space for recreational activities.

The FAMU Research and Extension Center is located in the city of Quincy, Florida, which is in the North Florida District of Gadsden County near the Florida-Georgia State line. The center consists of over 260 acres of farmland, pines, lakes and animal research labs. “The FAMU Farm” is operated by the College of Agriculture and Food Sciences (CAFS) Cooperative Extension Program, wherein the Veterinary Technology Program and Small Ruminant Program are also housed.
