What You Will See

The Kerr Center is a working ranch and farm, as well as an educational center. Our emphasis is on sustainable methods of meat and vegetable production and natural resource management.

Livestock projects include Angus/Gelbvieh and heritage-breed Pineywoods cattle, emphasizing sustainable grass-based production.

In our certified organic plots we are focused on organic soil building and conducting trials of heirloom (open-pollinated) vegetable varieties. Riparian area management and agroforestry are just two of the conservation projects on the ranch.
