HISTORY AND MISSION
In 1928, W.K. Kellogg deeded the Kellogg Farm to Michigan State College, now Michigan State University, with the intention that the College would “… operate this farm under a most modern system of farm management so that it may serve as an object lesson to the people of the region in which it is located.”
Today, the W.K. Kellogg Farm carries on that mission, supporting research that improves crop and animal management for the benefit of the producer, surrounding community and the environment. The integration of the row-crop, biofuel and dairy research programs provides a unique opportunity to examine agriculture from an integrated, whole system perspective.
