Palouse Research, Extension and Education Center Kambitsch Farm Equipment Maintenance and Storage Facility Grant uri icon



  • Current facilities at the Kambitsch Farm are limited to a old barn and house. The farm has no permanent restroom facilities, emergency shower, or break room for personnel. Expensive research and field-scale equipment is parked outside throughout the year resulting in accelerated deterioration and increase maintenance costs. Equipment repairs must be done outside, or the equipment must be transported to another site about 15 miles away. The farm lacks secure facilities for storage of routine shop tools. No facility is available for farm staff to perform day-to-day management activities at the farm. A 6,000 square foot (60 by 100 ft) post and beam metal-sided building would address the immediate needs for Kambitsch Farm. Approximately 3,000 square feet would be for equipment storage, 2,400 sqare feet for shop space, 600 square feet for break room, restroom, and office area.
