Jp En

Farm No. 2 of Sapporo Agricultural College located in the campus of Hokkaido University was created on September 13, 1876 based on the idea of the large-scale farm management conceived by William Smith Clark, the first vice president of the school. The farm was attached to Sapporo Agricultural College and called “College Farm.” It was divided into two sections of Farm No.1 and No.2. Farm No.1 was the study farm for agricultural education, while Farm No.2 was the model farm to practice animal industry management. The 9 wooden buildings constructed in the Meiji period (1868-1912) are now preserved on the farm today.

The farm had been closed for a short time since it was designated as a national Important Cultural Property in 1969, but in 2000, Model Barn and Corn Barn were open to the public and visitors can see the agricultural tools and historical documents during Hokkaido’s Pioneering period. The harm was designated as one of Hokkaido Heritages in 2001.
