About the Kerr Center

What is the Kerr Center all about?

Innovation, Demonstration, Education and Advocacy: IDEA.

The Kerr Center has been a consistent innovator and leader, the first to bring new ideas and sustainable practices to the Sooner State.

On its 4,000 acre ranch near Poteau, the center has tried out these new ideas, demonstrating the practical dimensions of sustainable agriculture– with horticulture, livestock and natural resource conservation projects.

Education has been its primary mission, through events, publications and now the web.

Since 1965, the Kerr Center has been an effective advocate for Oklahoma farmers and ranchers, for rural communities, and for a healthy, sustainable food system, from gate to plate.
