Farm Tour and Corn Boil
The researchers and staff at the Campbell Center will host their annual farm tour and corn boil, which was conceived of as a way to introduce neighbors to the farm’s research back when the 1,055-acre farm was operated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The center’s annual corn boil is just what it sounds like: a feast made from the corn grown on the property.
Since 2013, the Campbell Center has served as the hub of CAES’ sustainable row crop and pasture research. From living mulch to rotational grazing for grass-fed beef, researchers here work to make traditional agriculture more profitable and sustainable.
Van tours of the farm will depart every 15 minutes and will highlight the farm’s roughly 30 ongoing UGA research projects related to sustainable farming systems, nutrient cycling, water quality, organic production, livestock grazing systems, forage breeding and variety trials.
Lunch will be served at about 11:30 a.m.
