About Hyslop Farm. The land that makes up today’s Hyslop Farm was two farms prior to the start of CSS research operations at this location in 1929. Each farm was about 120 acres in size. The name of the farm honors the life and contributions of George Hyslop, a pioneering CSS professor. He also served as the second CSS department head from 1916 until his death in 1943. Hyslop Farm is located near Highway 20 between Corvallis and Albany at 3455 NE Granger Corvallis, OR 97330.
