The Kellogg Farm is embedded within the W.K. Kellogg Biological Station (KBS) in Southwest Michigan, and is comprised of 1,400 acres (555 ha) of managed agricultural lands for cropping system and dairy research, teaching and extension. The agricultural lands include 100 ha of fenced pasture and 100 ha of small crop fields divided by mowed grass alleys. Buried irrigation lines with strategically located risers serve much of the pasture and small crop fields.
Office, classroom, and meeting space are available at the Kellogg Farm office building, while the KBS Academic and Stack buildings provide much additional office and classroom space. The KBS Conference Center is a full service conference facility, providing lodging, meals and meeting space. Multiple field laboratories are available for use, including those dedicated to pasture, farming systems and agroecology. Two heated shops are available to work on equipment. Specific field equipment available for use is listed in the link below.
