Learn From Real Farmers
Farmers Bill and Linda are welcoming friends and family to visit their farm and learn more about their passion for sustainable farming.
During the tour, Bill and Linda look forward to sharing how they sustainably raise drug and hormone free animals, how the herd is fed, and other considerations for raising beef on their farm just west of St. Louis.
Hear About the Science of Farming
Often, it's easy to purchase food from the grocery store without giving a great deal of thought to the journey a product took to reach your table.
University of Missouri Ag School graduates, Bill and Linda will share some of the interesting facts about harvesting and handling grass/hay, pasture rotation, animal genetics, animal lifecycle, and how materials are recycled on the farm to improve sustainability.
Meet the Cows by Wagon Ride
Families will love the opportunity to board the Crooked Creek cow train and enter the field with our animals. You'll have the opportunity to see cows, calves, and bull up close, and ask questions safely aboard the wagon.
