Governed by a board of directors, the Agricultural Foundation of California State University, Fresno is composed of approximately 18 enterprise units that provide our students with a hands-on experience by operating and managing the University Farm Laboratory.

The University Farm Laboratory is a vital part of the education program for the Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology and is used to support courses offered by the seven departments within the college.  The Rue and Gwen Gibson Farm Market is one of the enterprise units which sells products that are grown, harvested, processed, produced, and/or created by Fresno State students.

The Agricultural Foundation reinvests any surplus funds back into equipment, facilities, and operations, in order to help ensure the long-term viability of this important laboratory for our students.
