Discover how cutting-edge research and sustainable practices are transforming agriculture at Lincoln University’s Cooperative Extension and Research (LUCER) second annual Carver Farm Field Day on Tuesday, June 11, 2024, at George Washington Carver Farm. Lincoln’s team of experts will offer guided trolley tours of the 150-acre farm and share the latest developments in modern agriculture, food production and sustainability. Current and aspiring farmers, agricultural professionals and home gardeners will learn about new technologies and techniques that can be applied to their own agricultural endeavors.

The field day is free and open to the public from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Interested guests are invited to register online to attend the event and get a free lunch. 

Farm Superintendent Chris Boeckmann emphasized that Carver Farm Field Day goes beyond showcasing the University’s research and extension programs. It functions as a valuable tool to better serve its audience. He explained, “The event allows the college's faculty and staff to get direct feedback and input from our stakeholders on issues and topics which are most important to them and how we can help address their needs.” 

Starting at 8 a.m. a trolley will transport visitors around the farm to explore the different fields of the agriculture industry. At each stop, Lincoln’s team of experts will delve into topics ranging from greenhouse production, poultry, quinoa, industrial hemp, water resources, food safety, aquaculture (recirculating systems and pond production), native plants, pest management, livestock grazing, small ruminants and hydroponics. Following the tour at 1:15 p.m., visitors can gain more insight on specific topics attending presentations by LUCER specialists and researchers.

As part of its land-grant mission, Lincoln University Cooperative Extension and Research (LUCER) aims to enhance the quality of life for people throughout Missouri with limited access to resources. Utilizing research-based education, LUCER programs address the needs of small farm owners throughout the state. Programs teach key skills relating to sustainability, leadership, agricultural innovation and more, so farmers throughout Missouri and beyond can keep up with a changing economy and continue to meet the needs of their customers.
