The Kerr Center for Sustainable Agriculture has been serving LeFlore County and southeastern Oklahoma since 1965 (read more history of the Kerr Center).
The annual Eco-Ag Conference unites farmers, ranchers and ag professionals from every facet of eco-farming to share their experience and expertise. Beginning and generational farmers running sustainable farms – as well as those in transition from conventional to organic – will walk away with useful, practical information that they can apply to their operations right away.
