William H. Miner Agriculture Research Institute is located at the former Heart’s Delight Farm on the lake plain adjacent to Lake Champlain at Chazy, NY. The Institute was created in 1951 as an agricultural research, education and demonstration farm.
Focus areas include the crop-animal-environment interface, cow comfort and behavior, and equine reproductive management. The Institute maintains a demonstration dairy herd of Holsteins and a herd of approximately 25 Morgan horses.
The Institute provides building space and field areas in support of Northern New York Agricultural Development Program small grants research and demonstrations.
