The University of Embu (UoEm) farm was inherited from Embu Agricultural Staff Training (EAST) College (established in 1993 for retooling agricultural extension officers) when the latter was upgraded by the Government to Embu University College in 2011 (now chartered as University of Embu).
The farm department falls under the division of Deputy Vice-Chancellor- Planning, Administration and Finance (DVC-PAF). The area under agricultural production is 35 acres. Clearing of more area to increase the area under production is underway.
The university farm envisages pursuing the following objectives;
- To sustainably and profitably produce agricultural products for internal and external markets
- To generate revenue to supplement funding’s for university operations
- To be a model training and extension services agricultural center
