A horrific harvest is coming soon to Greenville, Wisconsin, when students will have a chance to dig up actual human and animal corpses from a secret burial site nicknamed “The Body Farm.”

According to the site Wisconsin Sickness, the Body Farm is part of a program at Fox Valley Technical College which teaches students in Forensics how to detect, uncover and gather data from buried remains. The macabre program is based on a similar study founded at the University of Tennessee's Anthropological Research Facility, which was set up to examine the effects of freezing temperatures on dead tissue, and whether natural scavengers are drawn to frozen, buried carcasses.
In addition to being buried in an open field, the bodies may also be hidden in buildings, cars and swimming pools... but if you're thinking of a road trip to do a little corpse research of your own, you should know that there will be a heavily-guarded fence surrounding the perimeter.
There's still plenty of macabre sights to see in Wisconsin, however... including this bizarre roadkill art museum.
