 TPAC: About Us


This farm was a gift of Dr. George Throckmorton in memory of his father, Edmund. It was gifted to Purdue Agriculture in 1935 and deemed the "Edmund Throckmorton Farm Memorial" as a tribute to this pioneer leader of Tippecanoe County.

In the late 1990s, horticultural and specialty crop research was relocated from the old Horticultural and O'Neall Memorial Farms to the Meigs Farm, which is part of TPAC.
