Map to farm.  Be sure to allow yourself plenty of time to get to the Research Farm.  There is a lot of road construction north of Brookings:  on the Hwy 14 Bypass between Medary Ave and 22nd Ave; Medary Ave resurfacing that we hope will be completed by 6/16; and Western Ave is closed just north of the Bypass for bridge replacement.
