MU Bradford Farm opens public’s eyes to agriculture

Bradford Research Farm is a University of Missouri research center located just outside of Columbia. The farm was established in 1888 because of the national land grant university system. The farm is the home to 200 research projects, 25,000 plots, and several thousand breeding projects.

Students have countless opportunities to gain hands-on research experience at the farm, and even start their own projects. Tim Reinbott is the superintendent and has been in this position for many years.

Bradford Farm hosts many tours, clinics, workshops, and events every year. In October, there was a tour led by Reinbott for a group from the Environmental Leadership Office. About 150 tours like these happen every year, and Reinbott leads almost every one of those.
