A primary goal of The Center for Agroforestry is to educate and inform landowners and natural resource professionals about new research in agroforestry, and to demonstrate how this can be applied successfully to their operations. The UMCA Outreach team works side-by-side with landowners, resource professionals and extension agents from across the state, and the Midwest, through on-site consultations, educational workshops and informational exhibits – many of these events are hosted at the 660-acre HARC farm. Click here to learn more about upcoming outreach events.

You are cordially invited to an excellent showcase of the farm’s research, and its’ potential for Midwestern land and forest owners, every October at the annual Missouri Chestnut Roast. Guided tours, agricultural exhibits and dozens of Missouri value-added, specialty food vendors — along with fresh-roasted chestnuts — make this a great day for the whole family. Visit our Events page for this year’s scheduled Roast.

Each year HARC hosts an annual Field Day to present the latest research and findings. Visit our events page for upcoming educational workshops.

HARC is available to groups and classes for educational reasons. To schedule a visit, contact Cheryl Recker for more information at (660) 848-2268.
